Little Grey Bungalow
CoPA has it as 1937. And it does make a pretty dress.
They really knew how to make patterns for real women. Project Runway could learn a thing or two from this. And you would look FAB in it.
I wonder how it was kept closed beneath the buttons. Hidden snaps? Or did one wear a slip underneath?I've always loved princess seams.
It has a panel underneath that goes across the front, like a wrapped skirt.
I really like this.. you could step outside in it and no one would guess it was a housecoat.
Such a lovely pattern. If you were really really careful, could you trace it?
I have been buying vintage patterns lately. Some of them are in sad shape. I plan to put fine-weight vilene [non-iron] over the top of each pattern piece and trace it. Then I can put the vintage pieces away and use the vilene to cut my fabric. This is the method I use for Burda magazine patterns. All of the patterns are on two sheets of paper, and you have to trace the pieces you want.I love this pattern.
I could probably trace it...isn't it funny that this is a nicer outfit than most of my neighbors wear to church?
