Wearing History #4001
1940s Sailor Girl Playsuit- Blouse, Shorts, and Skirt
This listing is for a print at home, downloadable e-pattern.
This darling sailor playsuit is a perfect example of the patriotic and nautical fashion so popular in the 1940s. It includes a blouse, high waist shorts with button accents at the sides, and high waist skirt. This is so much fun to wear, and the separates can easily be mixed and matched with other pieces in your wardrobe for nautical flair!
This pattern was based on an original vintage pattern and retains the period pattern fit but has been updated to include easy to understand pattern markings, our standard sizing and seam allowance. This pattern been updated to include brand new step-by-step illustrated instructions, and a yardage chart and cutting layouts for modern 45" and 60" fabric widths. The pattern is printed on good quality bond paper. This pattern comes all neatly packaged in a clear resealable plastic bag so you can keep your pieces, instructions, and you can add your own fabric swatch and inspiration photos so they can be kept in one handy little packet!
Intermediate dressmaking knowledge and a muslin mock up of the pattern are suggested, as fit, ease, and construction are different than modern standards.
Please order pattern by measurements (given in inches), as the size numbers do not equate to modern pattern sizing and pattern sizing can vary from pattern to pattern on my website.
This E-pattern includes ALL SIZES GIVEN BELOW.
Our sample of the pattern was made up in a lightweight navy denim using white twill tape as trim and 3/4" plastic buttons.
