Make the front out of contrasting fabric for a different look. All sizes (busts 30" to 48") come in the same envelope. Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes. Fabric Suggestions: silk, rayon, or blends in solids and prints Notions: buttons, 10" zipper, shoulder padding. Yardage: 3 yards 54" wide or 4.5 yards 40" wide. 1940’s Golden Age of Hollywood, Swing Dancing. Swing Era Dress. World War II, Rosie the Riveter, WWII fashion. In the first years of the 1940’s, the long lithe silhouette of the previous decade was giving way to something new – a shorter more casual look. By the time the US entered World War II, very practical considerations promoted this style of frock.
