1940s swing dress pattern

Sense and Sensibility Patterns

Here is my 1940s “Swing” Dress Pattern, inspired by an original Hollywood design, circa 1942. The design comes from the WWII days of fabric rationing, which meant narrower skirts and more tailored lines.

Sizes 8-26 all included in one envelope.

Unique yoke with gathered shoulders and two sleeve options (short and “bracelet-length”).

Gored skirt great for twirling! Put on your dancing shoes!

Transition this pattern to evening wear by lengthening the skirt.
