"Jean" 1950s Dolman Jacket Pattern
Named for one of my favorite old movie stars who was an great comedian!
This perfect pajama set is from the early 1940s and is reminiscent of the sporty looks so popular in the early part of that decade. The “jacket” is a belted back blouse that can be made with long or short sleeves and has patch pockets at the front and a wide notched collar. The trousers have a
fitted waistband with release tucks. This ensemble doesn’t have to be limited to home wear and would look equally chic made in linen or tropical wool for sportswear!
This pattern has been multi-sized to included sizes 30"-42" bust. Please enlarge second image for size chart
- Difficulty -
Intermediate difficulty. Instructions are original to the time period and are somewhat minimal compared with today.
- Yardage Requirements-
Please see images. I have made modern yardage charts. The smallest sizes may require less than quoted. Allow extra for matching patterns, fabrics with a nap, or directional prints.
Because this was based on a period original, a mock up is HIGHLY SUGGESTED. Test construction and fit on your unique figure before cutting into your fashion fabric.
About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns
Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are printed on sturdy bond paper instead of tissue and clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
