Product Description

Sizes 6-26 “DD” all included in one envelope.

This 1914 Afternoon Dress was inspired by an original design in a 1914 home economics textbook. It is a wonderful pattern for everything from everyday linen dresses to ethereal, filmy teagowns! Several sleeve styles included (set-in or puffed; wrist- or elbow-length; cuffs or plain). Pattern includes instructions for lace insertion, and appendix includes traceable embroidery designs. You can also use the pattern to create a simple shift-style underdress. All instructions included! Special bodice option just for nursing moms with a secret front nursing panel.

Important Note: Because this pattern was drafted from an original 1914 design, it is created to be worn over a corseted form. If you do not wear a corset with the dress, it is recommended to cut your bodice two sizes larger than what your bustline measurement calls for; that will give you the needed modern “ease” to wear the dress comfortably without a corset!
