Announcing Lana!  This Resto-Vival sewing pattern is from the post-WWII 1940's and features a blouse and crop tops that can take you from day to evening wear.

- IMPORTANT NOTE About This Pattern’s Fit -

In order to retain historical accuracy, the proportions of this pattern are unchanged from the original period source material. It is important to note that we found the pattern to run about a size large, and also found it to run wide in the neckline. It is highly suggested to test a mock up and tailor the pattern to your preference after testing fit.

This pattern is a multi-sized pattern and includes sizes 30"-42" bust in one packet.

This pattern is in MISSES SIZING. Juniors or plus sizes may need alterations.



- 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.
