...Betsy fidgeted as the judge at the "Dress as your Favourite Food" sewing contest worked their way down the line.
"And what food are you, dear?" the judge said to her neighour, soppy old Lucinda Jones.
"I'm a blackcurrant," simpered Lucinda.
"Charming- how charming! Now, what about you, dear, in the pink, yellow and green- that's an interesting combination, isn't it?"
"I'm a jam pudding," said Betsy. "With lumpy custard."
The judge laughed. "How absolutely lovely, dear! But jam puddings aren't really green, are they?"
"They are," said Betsy, firmly. "In our house they are. Especially when Mum's forgotten to put them in the fridge for a couple of weeks..."


Cute dress by Simplicity corset-style waist detail. Make it evening or day length:

"The bodice is gathered in front and dart-fitted in back. A yoke, which may be contrasting, hugs the waistline and may lap and button or be smartly laced with self material. The smartly collarless neckline may be V shaped or round. Choose short or three-quarter length sleeves."


32" bust, 35" hip
(This pattern states it's a Junior Misses' pattern, but these measurements would obviously fit a slender adult!)


Pattern has no date printed, but is from the 1940s.


All pattern pieces and instructions are present and correct. Pattern pieces are of the unprinted variety which are factory pre-cut to size.

Some pieces have small edge tears, and the occasional edge or corner is rather worn (although no bits of pattern are missing- and the skirt piece is still the longer length). So the pattern is definitely usable, but some pieces may need handling with a little care- I have priced this pattern lower than I would usually to take this into account.

The envelope has had the edges mended with tape by a previous owner. It also has some age discoloration.
