For the Mature Woman!

This pattern is proof that the 20s wasn't just for teenage waifs.  The original for this one had a 52" bust. Based on an original pattern "for Mature Figures" from the late 1920s, this asymmetrically-seamed wrap-top dress with grown-on sleeves has a hidden underbody for smooth figure control.  An elegant look in a day dress suitable for every body.  The diagonal skirt seams are very typical of 1928-29.

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
