Several new patterns have been uploaded to the store mannequin section of the shopping cart. Most of these patterns are from the 1941- 42 era. This would have been just before the United States officially got into world war two. These little patterns are printed prior to regulations that started in September of 1942 that limited the amount of fabric that could be used to make garments from the patterns. The sale of patterns and fabric had increased 40 to 50% over the 1940 figures.
Mannikin pattern number 4736 is for another classic dinner dress. This dress again has different sleeve options.
Several other patterns are also included in this week’s update for the mannikin store. These patterns are only available as downloads. You need a printer that will print on legal size paper. The patterns are available as soon as payment clears.
