PRINTED PATTERN- Evelyn- Circa 1917 Skirt Pattern with Pockets- Wearing History
This is for PRINTED PATTERN- Mailed to you. E-Pattern download is available in a separate listing in my store.
Introducing Evelyn! Our first pattern with photo instructions!
Evelyn is a beautiful 1910s era skirt that can be made with or without pockets. This skirt hits two inches above the natural waist and falls from the top of an internal fitted waistband. The skirt fastens at the side with hooks and eyes and snaps. The pocket version of the skirt has fold down tabs that attach to a belt. The back of the skirt is gathered. When made without pockets, this works exceptionally well with suit jackets. When paired with a blouse in matching fabric, it makes a wonderful skirt for a two-piece dress.
This pattern is a Wearing History Signature Styles pattern. It was based on an original 1917 sewing pattern, and includes not only the original period sewing instructions, but also modern step-by-step photo instructions and cutting charts for modern fabric widths. This pattern also includes notes about this pattern from Delineator magazines of 1917.
Informative videos about this pattern are coming soon!
Our printed pattern version of this pattern is printed on gorgeous bond paper with color cutting lines. The printed version also includes instructions with a comb bound pattern booklet.
Evelyn is shown with the Elsie blouse pattern in our adventure look, and with the 1910s Blouse and Guimpe pattern for the traditional 1910s look. Blouse patterns sold separately. Pair this with our 1916 Suit Pattern for even more 1910s looks!
This pattern is a great option for steampunk, historical, or modern wear!
