1944 House Shirtwaist D40-1199
D40-1199; 1944 House Shirtwaist
9-piece digitally-drafted pattern originally by Simplicity, all 'wrap-arounded' in red and green, how 'bout this sweet little shirtwaist dress (for any occasion really)!
'The dress, fitted with darts at front waistline and underarm, is seamed down the center back. A large patch pocket trims the front and the belt buttons in back.
Style I has a very brief sleeve and is finished with self-ruffling.
Style II is trimmed with rick-rack. The sleeves are short.'
I LOOOOVE the ruffle version!
3/4" seams are given at underarm (all side) seams and 1/2" seams are given on all other edges.
RECOMMENDED FABRICS For Styles 1 & 2: Novelty cotton, linen, gingham, pique, seersucker, novelty silk crepe, rayon, batiste.
