1930s Day and Evening Blouse & Skirt Pattern
Sizes 26" to 40" Waist, All in One Size Pack (see more below)
This day to evening skirt has your wardrobe covered, no matter whether you need something dressy or casual.
This skirt looks as lovely in satin as it does in wool, and will be your go-to wardrobe basic for skirts for your pretty blouses! Make it casual, make it dressy. It even looks cute in plaids!
The evening skirt does NOT contain a hem allowance. You may need to add length, depending on your height. This pattern was originally cut full, but to conserve paper and cut down on pattern price, it is printed with half of each pattern piece, which will be cut on bias fold. Or you can trace the half of the skirt onto your own paper if you desire to cut full.
This pattern is based on vintage WOMENS sizing. Women's sizing was for a more mature figure- often better for women with lower bust points. Juniors, Misses, and Plus sizes may require alterations to get the pattern to fit correctly.
Cutting charts and yardage are not included for sizes 44" and 46" Bust, as the pattern was not originally made in these sizes.
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.
