Pattern Tour, 1940 Hooded Blouse, Wide Leg Trousers and Overalls SE40-3322

Alexandra Reynolds 1940's blouse Capsule wardrobe EvaDress Patterns pants Pattern Tour


15-piece pattern originally by Simplicity, 'Misses’ Blouse, Slacks and Overalls.  A choice of blouse with hood and long sleeves, or without hood and short sleeves is provided.  Slacks are darted, front and back and join a belt.  Overalls have halter top and pockets'.

The overalls/trousers (8-piece pattern) may be ordered without the blouse and the blouse (7-piece pattern) may be ordered as a separate, see options.

This pattern was issued just under the wire before war-time clothing restrictions soon factored out trouser turn-ups! 

I always thought the pattern art models resemble Judy Garland perhaps as a marketing ploy based on her popularity in 1939!

I have made many pair of these trousers since 1999 when I procured this pattern. I am short waisted, but I think you will even find the rise of these trousers SUPER long. I shorten mine an entire inch in this and other 40's styles of trousers from the EvaDress collection. People notice the excellent fit and drape of these that I received so many compliments!

3/4" seams are given at underarm (all side) seams and 1/2" seams are given on all other edges.
