This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper.
--- DESCRIPTION ---
This pattern is for playful 1940s tropical separates including tie top, shorts, and a sarong skirt. This pattern was inspired by an original 1940s pattern and has been built on a vintage block but has been updated for an improved fit, easy to read pattern pieces, and brand new step-by-step illustrated instructions.
The blouse has short sleeves with gathering along a curved seam forming a faux yoke. It ties at center front right below the bust.
The shorts hit at the natural waist and have the same accent gathering along the curved seam at each hip. The extra gathered fabric creates a graceful and playful line, perfect for warm summer days!
The sarong skirt is a wrap skirt, and at the front, tying at the inside hip, then wraps and ties at the left hip. The gathers create graceful draping. This can be made in a short for daytime or long for evening.

--- PATTERN TECHNICAL INFO ---
This Wearing History pattern was inspired by original period sources from the 1940s and has a vintage style fit, which is different than modern standards. Notably the armscyes and sleeves fit higher and tighter and the crotch length of the shorts is longer than modern standards. This pattern is recommended for intermediate sewers. A basic knowledge of sewing terminology and zipper application is expected, and a muslin mock up is very highly recommended.
