Simplicity 2667 - Misses' and Women's Dress and Apron

Late 1930s.

The pattern is described:
Collar joins in tiny revers. Princess fitting with slight flare at lower edge of skirt. Apron with patch pockets and straps over the shoulder, ties at the back.
The ruffled trim on the sleeves and collar is purchased. It's a bit unusual to see this on a house dress, a garment designed primarily for ease of laundering.

The prints in the illustration are pretty, and the matching dress and apron make for a nicely "finished" look. You'll need about 7 years of bias binding for the apron.

Recommended fabrics include percale, lawn, seersucker, gingham, poplin, pique, cotton crepe. For the dress only, one can use silk or rayon crepe.

The instructions detail two closing options; with the new-fangled slide fastener, and with snaps and a hook at the waistline.

This is an unprinted pattern. The instruction sheet is of poor quality paper.

Ha ha, seven years of bias binding. I know the feeling. said...

*sigh* My brain just isn't capable of proof-reading after about 6 p.m.

Of course I meant yards but really, years is funnier, because applying seven yard of binding is going to feel like it's taking seven years.
