This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper. Now also includes A0 file to print at a copyshop

--- DESCRIPTION ---

This darling sailor playsuit is a perfect example of the patriotic and nautical fashion so popular in the 1940s. It includes a blouse, high waist shorts with button accents at the sides, and high waist skirt. This is so much fun to wear, and the separates can easily be mixed and matched with other pieces in your wardrobe for nautical flair!


This pattern was based on an original vintage pattern and retains the period pattern fit but has been updated to include easy to understand pattern markings, multi-sizes and seam allowance. This pattern been updated to include brand new step-by-step illustrated instructions, and a yardage chart and cutting layouts for modern 45" and 60" fabric widths.

Intermediate dressmaking knowledge and a muslin mock up of the pattern are suggested, as fit, ease, and construction are different than modern standards.
