1935 Ladies' Coat Frock Pattern, size 18
1935 Ladies' Coat Frock Pattern, size 18

EDD30-119 - 1935 Ladies' Coat Frock Pattern, size 18. This 7 piece pattern fits size 18 (36" bust, 30" waist and 39" hip). The original fabric suggestions cited are for wool and satin contrasts, heavy pure silk crepes or for novelty and plain corduroy or a silk brocade contrast with cotton velvet body! Through the mid-1930s, the natural waistline was often accompanied by emphasis on an empire line. Short bolero jackets, capelets, and dresses cut with fitted midriffs or seams below the bust increased the focus on breadth at the shoulder. By the late '30s, emphasis was moving to the back, with halter necklines and high-necked but backless evening gowns with sleeves. Evening dresses with matching jackets were worn to the theater, nightclubs, and elegant restaurants. Skirts remained at mid-calf length for day, but the end of the 1930s Paris designers were showing fuller skirts reaching just below the knee; this practical length (without the wasteful fullness) would remain in style for day dresses through the war years. Other notable fashion trends in this period include the introduction of the ensemble (matching dresses or skirts and coats) and the handkerchief skirt, which had many panels, insets, pleats or gathers. The clutch coat was fashionable in this period as well; it had to be held shut as there was no fastening. Full, gathered skirts, known as the dirndl skirt, became popular around 1945. Gloves were "enormously important" in this period.[9] Evening gowns were accompanied by elbow length gloves, and day costumes were worn with short or opera-length gloves of fabric or leather. 1930's fashion trends were driven by designers and Hollywood stars such as Lana Turner, Lauren Bacall, Anita Page, Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Great for Stylish Thirties - 1930s Fashion, 1940's Fashion. Rita Hayworth, Mae West, Ingrid Bergman, Claudette Colbert, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Ava Gardner, Lillian Gish, and Audrey Hepburn.
