Sophisticated Lady #236
Folkwear's "Sophisticated Lady" is a two piece suit and a knitted sell that has all the sleek styling of the era. The simulated shoulder yoke and peplum of the hip-length jacket are created by the use of a slashing and gathering technique that controls fullness and fit. This technique first became popular in the fabric shortage years of the fourties. The unlined jacket has slightly padded shoulders and long, fitted sleeves. It is paired with an absolutely straight skirt that has classic hip darts for shaping and a center back kick pleat for ease of movement.
Pattern includes all sizes (Misses 6-16).
