1940s Lingerie Pattern
The envelope is a bit tatty, but all the pattern pieces are intact inside, all folded together.
The long nightdress is particularly slinky, but that isn't what fascinated me about this pattern.
It was the small print on the front ...
... and the instructions inside
... which describe everything you need to do in preparation
... for laying the pattern onto panels of parachute silk.
Today's bit of fun is a link up with Beth's blog Love Laugh Quilt to join in with the Sewing Museum. If you want to see lots of fascinating sewing boxes, buttons, machines, ribbon, thread... all the sort of stuff I squirrel away into every spare corner... click on the link.
