attractive and simple design for a shirt-waist. There is a
deep round yoke front and back, with the body of the waist
full both at the top and bottom front and back. Sleeve is
regulation length. The waist portion below the yoke will
prove a good design to make up waists to be worn with
guimpes." Minimal directions. Pattern dates circa 1899.
Suggested fabrics: Silk, woolen and cotton fabrics. The
colors were harmonious or monochromatic schemes heightened
with vivid touches of strong color (particularly red).
