War Time 1944 Suit Dress Pattern Vogue #5253 Med
Two piece Vogue dress pattern or dress/suit pattern circa 1944 with dickey. A two piece dress is different than a tailored suit in that the construction is "softer", less structured. They are easier to make and can be done in a variety of fabrics. The jacket of this pattern is collarless and has a one button closure with faux pocket details. The skirt is straight and comes to just below the knee. A bib style dickey pattern is included in lieu of a blouse which helped to save on fabric use. This pattern meets all of the War Time material restrictions of the day. I have included a snap shot of the pattern description that is printed on the envelope, it gives more detail.... see below and click for enlarged version.

Note on Pattern Sizes: Vintage pattern sizing is not like todays sizes. You can read all about this on our main pattern page. PLUS did you know it is not necessary to buy a pattern in your size? if you learn the basics about re-sizing a pattern you can alter it to your specifications. Links to sites with pattern grading instructions can be found on the main pattern page as well.
