This authentic vintage pattern by Simplicity is for the wildly popular two piece ensembles that were referred to as patio dresses.
Their description is:
"Misses' blouse and skirt, transfer included: Blouse, View 1: Collar forms a V shaped neckline outlined with bead embroidered applique. The short sleeves have cuffs. Blouse View 2: Contrasting ribbon and bow trim low round neckline. The three quarter length sleeves are gathered up at lower edge. Broomstick skirt, View 1, features three gathered tiers. Tiered Skirt, View 2, is trimmed with contrasting ribbon and bows."
This is dated 1952.
There are a total of 13 pattern pieces, they are all present, some have been cut. This comes with the instruction sheet, as well, of course.
The envelope's cover is in colors of black, orange-red and golden yellow, mostly.
The flap of the envelope is a bit tattered, but the three sides are stable. The graphics of the cover girls are not torn, and there no stamps or writing on the envelope's front.
This is sized a 12, which, at that time, was for a bust of only 30, a waist of 24. If you know how to grade patterns, this could easily be made larger.
