Rare Original Vintage 1940s New York Creation Pattern Princess Cut Dress Number 849 Bust 38Rare Original Vintage 1940s New York Creation Pattern Princess Cut Dress Number 849 Bust 38

The New York Pattern Company (Gold Seal) of New York, NY offered this princess fitted dress pattern numbered 849.

Their description reads:

"High neck with slashed opening at front; underfaced and rolled in revers, perforated for sweetheart neckline. Set-in long sleeves with perforation for short and 3/4 length sleeves."

This is sized 20 which in this case is a 38" (bust), and 41" hip, which is of itself another rarity: finding larger sized sewing patterns are nearly impossible to find, let alone in such excellent condition.

There are only 5 pieces for this, and all five are present. The instruction sheet is included.

The envelope is worn on the ends, and the flap has a tear in it, but the pattern itself is perfectly ready to be laid and cut.

Interestingly, the models on the front bear a faint resemblance to Grace Kelly (in the print) and Joan Crawford (with her hair swept up, and in red).
