source material from which these early patterns are replicated contain
much less information than the more modern patterns from the 1920's and
Patterns and fashion journals published during these
eras presumed that the home seamstress possessed sufficient skills to
construct a garment without detailed directions. As a result, patterns
for facings, linings and other details - such as instructions on how to
create trims, are sketchy at best -- and usually non-existent. It is
very important when sewing to make a fitting mock-up of the pattern out
of muslin or other waste fabric, and make all of the adjustments for
your individual figure on the mock-up.
Although fabric yardage required is provided, there are NO layout diagrams included to this dress.
