I am a big collector of NRA (National Recovery Act) branded items. They are a great way to nail down a time period as they were only produced from 1933-1935.

How delightful is this dress? A lovely straight dress with two layers of ruffles for the sleeve and accents for the hips. Ideal is a crepe, an organdy or silk.

This pattern is a 40 bust 34 waist 43 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.

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

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.

With my line of repo patterns I am also including some goodies. Printouts of some vintage techniques including seam finishing and lay out techniques to help you along the way. A bevy of tools we can all still use.

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