Isn’t this pattern from 1950 just fabulous? It’s featured in Vogue’s New Book for Better Sewing as the “background dress.” Meaning, I suppose, that the sheath-style dress is the background for the scarf embellishment. I love how they show you all the different ways you can style it on the pattern envelope. But what I really wanted to highlight about this pattern is the recommended fabrics and how wildly they differ from today’s fabric choices.
