What is a Draft Pattern? (Click to find out)
"...a new style walking-dress, which is particularly suitable for fall and early winter wear...There is no fullness except at the back breadth, and that must be gathered before sewing on to the waistband. The skirt is cut in vandykes at the edge, but should vandykes be objected to, the paper pattern may be so laid on the material, and the skirt cut straight at the edge..."
