Vogue 8364 - Skirt
There isn't anything particularly unusual about this skirt pattern. However, along with the released pleat at the center back to accommodate striding energetically across the greens, the designers have provided an attached "saddle" pocket for your tees, divot tool, and lipstick.
This is somewhat similar to the earlier Pictorial 7559, though in that case, the pocket is detachable.
This pattern doesn't appear to have been used.
Those of us who spent time in the Philadelphia area will probably feel a little nostalgia for the old John Wanamaker department store. By the time I knew Wanamaker's in the 1970s, the sewing department was gone, though only 75 miles upstate, I patronized the yard goods department in little Hess's department store until the late 1980's.
