Vintage French-language sewing pattern for women's underwear / lingerie - a slip / petticoat and French knickers / tap pants
Les Patrons-Modeles (Paris), pattern no. 143
Probably dating from the 1920s or 1930s

Very chic and feminine!

Unprinted pattern with 8 pattern pieces. The pieces are enclosed within a paper wallet / envelope, with the instructions printed on the reverse

** Please note that this is a French-language pattern **

It states Size 44 on the envelope. I have *estimated* a vintage European Size 44 to equate to around a vintage UK Size 16 or a vintage US Size 14. However, please note that vintage dress sizes usually run smaller than their modern equivalents
The actual measurements as stated on the reverse of the pattern are as follows (so please check suitability):
Bust: 96cm (approx. 37.75")
Hips: 103cm (approx. 40.5")

I have no experience of working with vintage French sewing patterns but I believe that seam and hem allowances are not usually included

This pattern has been used but is still in good condition. A small amount of damage to the bodice section (probably from the use of tailor's tacks) but does not affect usability. The outer envelope is also in good condition, though a little creased and with a small tear along the right hand edge

I am happy to provide a combined shipping discount - please see 'Shop Policies' for details. Shipping is usually estimated at time of listing (particularly for combined shipping) but any significant overcharge will be refunded.

Any questions, please feel free to ask

You are purchasing the pattern only - the other 'props' are not included in the sale (e.g. buttons, scissors)
