Day dresses, day dresses, day dresses! I'm all about them. Their versatility, their variety and their scarcity in larger sizes.

This war time 40s day frock is great. Its got a skirt yoke that has two front pleats on each side. The button front top can be collarless or no, and there are two sleeve lengths.

I already have plans to make this number up shortly.
48 bust 42 waist 52 hip

My patterns are hand traced staying true to the original vintage shapes and markings, scanned and outlined with vector lines. They are printed on quality paper ready for use. As with all vintage patterns, a mock up is strongly encouraged as this pattern has not been tested for assemblage or fit.

Please note, in an effort to conserve paper some instructions may be printed on the pattern paper in large open spaces between pieces, instead of solely separate prints bundled along with the pattern.

My patterns are for home use only, not commercial production.

As well as prints of the original instructions I am also including some goodies. Printouts of some vintage techniques including seam finishing and lay out techniques. A bevy of tools we can all still use.

***With reproduction patterns, allow up to a week prior to shipping.***
