        Two Way Dress and Coat

        This dress can be made in two ways and two materials. The frock, with long sleeves, is cleverly cut on the bias, especially for striped crepe, or checked ‘Celanses’ crepe in new shades of burnt orange, maize yellow, red and green on black. The dress without sleeves is for pique, or a new Cepea material Rosette, in chevrons, in flag blue.

        A coat of printed linen or Ferguson Fergotex with a linen like finish, contributes to chic, while one in jade would carry its owner smartly to cocktails.

        Offered here as: Paper Pattern and the Original pattern. This pattern is also available as a PDF download.
