        30s Split Hem Dress & Jacket

        1930’s One Piece Culottes Dress with Split Skirt & Jacket. The skirt of the dress is so cleverly cut that it permits perfect freedom for active sports and still looks like a regular pleated skirt. The dress has short raglan sleeves and the smart neckline may be worn high or open. The jacket has a waistband and blouses slightly and provides the smart saddle shoulder and buttoned patch pockets.

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