in 1940s,Skirts,Vintage Sewing

Hello everyone!

I want to share this pattern with you, as I have just made it up, and really love it!


The pattern is printed in 1943, and features three versions of a box pleated, A-line skirt. I made version 2, which has pleats both front and back, and a side button placket. I made it up in some rather heavy corduroy in dark petrol. But I can certainly envision this pattern made up in a great variety of styles/fabrics. It would be killer in tartan!

I am a Norwegian gal, born in 1976. I discovered sewing in spring 2013, so I am kind of a newb :) I have always loved everything vintage, and was thrilled to find I could actually make my own vintage inspired clothing using old patterns! I love many different eras, but the 1940s hold a special place in my heart :) I am so glad to have found the online sewing community, so many talented people. Very inspiring :)

I like this very much. Funny, I was just thinking I might make up a corduroy skirt very similar in style to this. x
