Pattern #9751: Ladies' Dress: Dated to April 1918

Size: 38" bust, 28" waist, 41-1/2" hips.

On page 69 of the April 1918 issue of The Delineator the description for the 9751 design reads, "In a taupe-colored novelty silk frock the draped waist fronts are suggestive of a trim little jacket or waistcoat effect that is especially attractive for a dress that is to be worn on the street without a coat, under a scarf or fur neck-piece during the Spring. A long shawl collar of light silk prettily outlines the becoming open neck and always makes a dark dress more wearable. The drapery in the front of the waist is soft and graceful and the sash that extends from the front and ties loosely breaks the long lines of the one-piece back. The plain close sleeve is used a great deal for the walking costume and it is made with one seam and a dart plait which is outlined by a series of self-colored buttons. A body lining is there if you wish to use it. The dress would be very pretty in satin, charmeuse, foulard, shantung, silk poplin, crêpe meteor, crêpe de Chine, or in serge, gabardine, checks or wool jersey. A medium size requires 4 1/8 yards novelty silk 36 inches wide, 3/8 yard plain silk 40 inches wide."

Cost: $20.00
