Two stylish frocks from 1937 one for the daytime the
other for Afternoon to dinner. They are cleverly
designed to give a slim-line silhouette. View A has
a rever collar that can be fixed or detachable, slim
sleeves and a panelled skirt. View B has a fixed
cascade rever, slimline sleeves with a wing that
hangs from elbow to cuff (you could leave these
off if preferred). Panelled skirt as View A.
I think the Afternoon version would make a lovely
Bridal gown, with the skirt lengthened
The pattern has been re-drafted in it’s original size
