This is an original printed pattern. It remains in factory folds. Dress has yoke front, cut in one with collar and band. Long or short sleeves may be chosen. Jacket has long sleeves and welt pockets. Copyright 1940, this is an example of the transition from 30s glamour into the 40s, before the war started and fabric rationing began. This likely was considered to be plus size in the day, as the bust 36 style was the smallest size sold for this pattern. It was sold up to bust 50 (not included).
Include all pieces and instructions.
