A French Pattern from 1955 for a Sheath Dress
with Large Pockets and a Matching Bolero. It
has been redrafted from the original and
translations added to the actual pattern pieces
to help with identifying them. I have also added
an option to omit the pockets if required.
The Instructions are in French but you can easily
use one of the free online translation sites to help.
I have also included a list of translated sewing
terms to get you started.
No seams are allowed for on these patterns, so
adjusting to another size is fairly straightforward
Taille (size) 46 which is approx 38 Bust
Please note this is an estimation of equivalent size.
I recommend that you check yourself as I can’t
guarantee it is correct.
The Pattern and Instructions come as PDFs, which
are easy to download and print
When printing the pattern from the PDF, you must
choose actual size or 100%. It is set up to print for
both US letter/legal and A4.
