RH1319 — 1930s Frock


1930s Ladies’ Frock sewing pattern



Get this 1930s Day Dress pattern and be gorgeous by dinnertime!

Based on an original pattern from the 1930s, this women’s frock pattern is a smart design for a tailored look.  The skirt provides additional width in the front and back panel and the bodice is made with additional fullness over the shoulders.  Long sleeves or short sleeve options.  V-shaped neckline is embellished with a flattering jabot in quintessential 30s style.

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 48″ 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 28″ to 48″) 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.

Fabric Suggestions:  
silk crepe, satin, printed cotton, and other dress weights
snaps and button for closures
4 yards 54″ wide
