Historic Original Sewing Pattern

This is a historic original sewing pattern. For enthusiasts of authentic clothing, it was digitized based on the original paper pattern.

All parts of the sewing pattern, the labeling, the descriptions and the images stem from the original source.

Please note that the quality of the fit, the circumference, the validity of the descriptions (in original orthography) and images potentially may not correspond to today's quality standards anymore.

General remarks


True-to-scale printing: Pay attention to the PDF-Viewer adjustment NO FITTING TO PRINTER PAGE SIZE and check the control square on the first pattern page.

You can reduce paper consumption on large sewing patterns, if you print only required pages, e.g. if different skirt length is possible.

Pattern preparation

The pages are numbered (see overview) and fit together at the framing line mark. Easiest is cutting two of the margins (e.g. right and bottom), first gluing rows, then gluing the rows together.

Material and Cutting

The material consumption cannot be reasonable specified because of the many different sizes and the reqirements of the used materials. Please lay the cut out paper pattern parts on the floor like on the material panel and calculate the required material amount.

The sewing pattern are without seam or hem allowances. Please add.

The sewing pattern shows all shape defining parts with specification of the required quantity. You should add reinforcement, lining, facing or decoration according to the requirements of material or your wishes.

Enjoy Sewing!

Sewing requires practise and experience. Always recommendable: Sew a sample of cheap material.

But also beginner will be successful with some patience and a good book showing the basic sewing techniques.

Additional Information

The front panel is cut with the centre fold.

The skirt panels are sewed together according to the assigned letters, the rear panel joined at the top and a double fabric band stitched on as a waistband.
