Description

Playing with 40’s playsuit patterns— difficult and fun. The most difficult thing was probably making the sweetheart collar symmetrical (I didn’t have any tracing paper) as well as the very poofy sleeves! The pattern actually called for inserts to make the sleeves poofier. I wouldn’t suggest it— I did and they’re ridiculous.

Material Notes

cotton weave.

    Very sweet. It might look good sleeveless too. Don’t you love that a size 14 has a 32 bust…that would be a uk size 8 (American 6?). Was it hard to adapt? Does the bonnet come as a pattern too…weren’t you tempted?!!!
