Ready Printed Version
A Two way Siren Suit from the 1940’s wartime
years. It was designed to wear over your pajamas
or whatever you were wearing at the time the
sirens went off to keep warm in the often cold
and damp Anderson shelters or underground
This one has two options, one with a hood and
gathered ankle cuffs the other with a collar and
the legs free. Both have pockets at the hip and
one at the breast and button up the front with
a nipped in waist.
As usual with these wartime patterns no fabric
suggestions are included. It was a matter of
whatever you could get your hands on fabric
wise or use something like an old worn blanket
maybe. So try a wool or Flannel suiting or for a
lighter weight, cotton, linen, etc.
To fit Bust 36ins. Hip 40 ins. There is no waist
measurement as you would have adjusted to fit.
Skill level: Intermediate and upwards
The pattern has step by step instructions and I
have included a helpful sewing guide
