This beautiful pattern has been used once (by me) and is from a non-smoking home. Original paper envolope and original vellum envelope included. Considering it is more than 80 years old, it is in excellent shape. One piece was missing when I bought it (the collar) but I drafted a new one onto newspaper and am including it. It is not exactly as the illustration shows. Should be a bit longer.

I have made this dress up and, if you know what you are doing, the lack of construction illustrations should not be a problem. Layout illustrations are for a size 36 on 39" material, so they are not extremely helpful, but it's really common sense. I made it in two contrasting fabrics, but it can be done in all one color. I also shortened the skirt for my version (by folding the pattern pieces; I did not cut them). The coat in the photo is from a different pattern and not included.

The specifics:

W. T. Grant Co. (This was a variety store in operation from 1906-1976)
pattern 828.

Size: listed 46, but in a non-stretchy material, this was a fine size for me (I'm a 14/16, 40" bust) as this style is supposed to be a bit loose. Adjust for size using your own measurements.

As described on the pattern envelope:

"Ladies' and Misses' slip-on dress. Waist (bodice) has square neck in front with attached collar and jabots cut in one. Set-in sleeves that may be made long or short with flaring cuffs. Two-piece circular skirt with yoke at top, attached to waist (bodice) under a removable belt."
