This is a 1914 Afternoon Dress, which was inspired by an original design in a vintage 1914 home economics textbook. This dress offers modesty and femininity nearly lost to an era gone past. We think this would also make a beautiful and modest wedding dress for a young lady. Sizes 6-26 "DD" all included in one envelope.
Several sleeve styles included (set-in or puffed; wrist- or elbow-length; cuffs or plain).
Pattern includes instructions for lace insertion, and appendix includes traceable embroidery designs.
You can also use the pattern to create a simple shift-style underdress. All instructions included!
Special bodice option just for nursing moms with a secret front nursing panel.
Important Note: Because this pattern was drafted from an original 1914 design, it is created to be worn over a corseted form. The designer recommends cutting your bodice two sizes larger than what your bustline measurement calls for; that will give you the needed modern "ease" to wear the dress comfortably.
Comes in a printed large envelope. From Sense and Sensibility.
