1940's Daytime Dress Sewing Pattern 1039 Hollywood With Barbara Britton of Paramount


This Hollywood pattern features Barbara Britton of Paramount Studios on the front of the envelope. The dress pattern is for a four piece skirt and shaped insert at the waist. Mid or short sleeves with detachable collar and cuffs if desired.

This pattern is a size 20 with a bust measure of 38 and hip of 41. Pattern sizes in the 30's and 40's were very different from today's sizes.

The envelope is a bit tattered, but not too bad for it's age. The direction sheet and tissue pieces are all there.

This is a very shapely 1940's style dress.
