Pattern #6129

Size: 38" bust, 42" hips.

This pattern was published by The Ladies Home Journal Pattern Company. Originally the pattern was described as "Ladies' and Misses' one-piece wrap-around negligee, having extended bands around neck, lower edges and on sleeves. There are inverted tucks at shoulders of fronts and at back of neck." Written directions.

In History of 20th Century Fashion, by Elizabeth Ewing she states, "Sunburn was for the first time sought and admired. It even had snob-appeal, for in the days before jet travel and package holidays opened up the world's playgrounds to millions, to go to these favored places in the sun was a distinction. In the late 'twenties soaking up the sun on the Rivera was new, but it caught on quickly and the South of France became a very fashionable international playground, drawing people from all over Europe and also a great number of Americans, with Maxine Elliott [a famous American stage and screen actress] as a bright particular star. All the old cover-up ideas about bathing and the beach went by the board. Beaches strewn with sprawling brown, or would-be brown bodies had been unthought of in the past, when clothes for the promenade or even the beach were almost garden party style, but now they became usual everywhere at home and abroad.

Suggested fabrics: One-piece wrap-around negligee were made of serpentine cotton crepe, rayon satin, cotton print, dimity and cotton pongette. The colors were white, black, rose, tan, Copenhagen blue, blue fancy, and green fancy.

Materials required: 4-1/4 Yds. 36" wide fabric.

Cost: $15.00
