With both a long-sleeved and short-sleeved version, this darling vintage dress pattern from the early 1940s is good for the 4-season weather of New England.

The dress has a mock bib that closes with buttons on the bodice. The skirt of the dress also has a mock bib complete with pockets. Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? Have fun with this one by color blocking the bibs and yoke or by playing with stripes!

Side zipper closure. Set in sleeves. Long sleeve has cuff with button closure. Dress weight fabrics recommended; cotton, wool, linen, shirtings and rayon.
