Another Vintage Pattern

in: Sewing
1045: Neck waist?
High neck waist, perforated for
v-shaped neck, with or w/o shawl
collar; long fitted sleeves and
short sleeves. attaached 3-piece
skirt.

Flat crepe, rayons, alpaca,
suede cloth, printed material,
thin wool, taffeta, synthetics

Isn’t that cute? It’s not even from the early 1930s, like most of my patterns. This one is from the late ’30s or early 40s. The puffy sleeves give me pause, but maybe they would be okay on me. I used to love them when I was a teenager.

The pattern envelope was funny: high neck waist? What does that mean? We’d call it a funky empire waist. I’ll have to ask my mom what it means.

The fabric recommendations tickle me, too. Printed material?
