Another one of those clever wartime designs
from Weldon’s. The dress has a one piece back
and puff sleeves. The skirt front and side panels
are joined to the front bodice which is gathered
into the skirt and has a cute little gathered belt
which also sits either side of the front panel and
is buckled at the back when finished. The dress
has a side placket opening which can be finished
with hooks and eyes or press studs.
As usual with Forties wartime patterns there are
no fabric suggestions. Because of rationing it was
pretty much what you could get or reuse. Try cotton,
Rayon, Viscose, Linen, Chambray these would work
well with the design.
To fit Bust 32 ins. – Hip 36 ins.
