E-PATTERN 1933 Katharine Hepburn Ensemble E5156
E5156; 1933 Katharine Hepburn Ensemble
16-piece pattern originally by Butterick is a very scarce pattern for Howard Greer's design for a costume as worn by Miss Hepburn in an R.K.O. Radio Picture', being her first starring role in 'Christopher Strong'.
The ensemble consists of the pleated hat, one-piece dress and jacket (in two styles) with cut-away sleeves and attached scarf that laps over the front to close the jacket with buttons.
3/4" seams are given at underarm (all side) seams and 3/8" seams are given on all other edges.
A multi-size version of this pattern is available (for the dress, hat and jacket with long or short sleeves, only in E-Pattern) here.

Access the article I wrote for Threads Magazine, June/July issue 'Working with Vintage Patterns' highlighting this pattern.
E-Patterns should (but are not guaranteed to) save you from shipping costs and shipping time.
Size 16 fits 34" bust, 28" waist, 37" hip.
