--- DESCRIPTION ---
This Resto-Vival pattern from the NRA era of 1933-1935 features must have accessories for the chic 1930s woman. Included in this pattern are a sporty hat, a scarf, gauntlet style gloves, and spats or shoe toppers.
Size 21.5" hat
Size 5 3/4 - 6 gloves
To Measure for Hat and Glove Size-
For glove size- measure with a tape measure horizontally around the palm of your hand when open , not including your thumb. You may choose to make a fist and then read the measurement, to include wearing ease. The measurement in inches is your glove size.
For hat size- place a tape measure parallel around the circumference of your head, just above your ears. The measurement in inches will be your vintage ladies hat size.
A mock up is highly recommended, as vintage fit was different than modern fit. A mock up of the gloves and the spats are especially recommended. 1930s shoe sizes were different in proportion to modern shoes, even those of retro styling, so will most likely require a few mock ups to ensure the spats will fit correctly over your shoes. In addition, the original pattern did not give a shoe size for this pattern, and was most likely for a very small foot.
This pattern has not been tested for for fit or construction.
This is a Wearing History Resto-Vival pattern, which includes original period instructions. Period instructions are sparcer than modern day instructions. Please fully read the paragraph below for more information on Resto-Vival patterns and what period dressmaking using restored and revived original fashion history sources entails.
About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns
Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
