I made this two-piece dress from Simplicity 3873, a pattern from 1941! It’s an “attractive youthful style for the mature figure” according to the pattern envelope, LOL. It has a top blouse gathered at the shoulders and waist with long sleeves gathered at the cuffs, and a gored skirt (11 separate panels). It was great fun to make and I love its authentic period look!
I made this from a vintage yellow (VERY yellow) twin poly-cotton flat sheet from the Salvation Army.
