Get this 1930s Day Dress pattern and spring into Spring!
Based on an original pattern from the early 1930s, this beautiful day dress will flatter you with its six-gored skirt and puffed sleeves or sleeve ruffles so typical of 30s style. Beautiful in sheer silks and fluttery fabrics. Make the ruffles to match the dress fabric or in graduated shades for a splash of colour.
Reconstructing History patterns are different from other reproduction patterns!
We don’t just photocopy old patterns and sell them to you. We use the original patterns as a basis. Then we grade the pattern in modern sizes, up to 48″ bust and 40″ waist, so they’ll fit far more sizes than the original patterns ever did. And we don’t just stick you with the old vague instructions either. Kass personally goes through each pattern, improving the instructions, modernizing the vocabulary and adding in all those things that the old pattern companies assumed their customers knew. Yet we don’t remove the flavour of the original pattern, so you can truly experience using a vintage pattern without all the trouble of resizing and “translating” it.
All sizes (busts 28″ to 48″) come in the same envelope. Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you’ve come to expect from Reconstructing History.
