Wearing History #1002
EXTENDED SIZES- Smooth Sailing Mid 1930s Sports Togs Pattern- Blouse, Trousers, and Shorts
FINALLY IN PLUS SIZE! This is a brand new draft of the Smooth Sailing Pattern- I've been working on this off and on for years so excited to release it!
This pattern was drafted off of a plus size form based on real body scans in a size 18W.
Many thanks to Elisa of Isis Wardrobe for the photographs of her wearing the outfit she made from this pattern.
These trousers and blouse were inspired by the mid to late 1930s. It works well for looks from 1935 to 1941, but can look just as chic when mixed in with modern basics.
ALL SIZES BELOW are included:
the base size is 45"-38"-48"

This pattern is for the perfect casual vintage ensemble- for dancing, wearing about town, and anywhere you want to take them- tailored enough to be dressy but casual enough to go anywhere! This design is inspired by the mid to late 1930s. It works well for looks from 1935 to 1939, but can look just as chic when mixed in with modern basics.
The yoked blouse has short puffed sleeves cut on the straight of grain and cuffs that are cut on the bias. It has a self facing and buttons up the front. It provides the perfect background for fun buttons, and the cut is fitted at the waist but loose at top. It’s perfect for prints or solids! The front can be buttoned all the way up to the neck or the top buttons can be left off to make a notched collar.
This pattern is recommended for intermediate sewers. A basic knowledge of sewing terminology and zipper application is expected.
