Get our 1919 Slip-on Blouse and Bodice Skirt pattern and show your Great War style!
Based on an original pattern from 1919, this slip-on ladies’ blouse and calf-length bodiced skirt pattern comes with the typical post-War look. Skirt is attached to a sleeveless bodice worn under the Blouse. Bodice can be made camisole style with ribbon straps or as full bodice. Make your Skirt and Blouse in the same fabric or mix and match and decorate to suit your fancy.
Reconstructing History patterns are different from other reproduction patterns!
We don’t just photocopy old patterns and sell them to you. We use the original patterns as a basis. Then we grade the pattern in modern sizes, up to 50″ bust and 40″ waist, so they’ll fit far more sizes than the original patterns ever did. And we don’t just stick you with the old vague instructions either. Kass personally goes through each pattern, improving the instructions, modernizing the vocabulary and adding in all those things that the old pattern companies assumed their customers knew. Yet we don’t remove the flavour of the original pattern, so you can truly experience using a vintage pattern without all the trouble of resizing and “translating” it.
All sizes (busts 30″ to 50″) come in the same envelope. Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you’ve come to expect from Reconstructing History.
