Polka dots make pattern news
There’s big news this spring for the home sewer who likes polka dots. Here, in variety, are dotted fabrics in a number of the newest pattern designs. Choose the size of dot best suited to you and your pattern — and sew away!
- Youthful in styling — and practical, too — this dress has a scoop neckline, brief cap sleeve, and an above-waist belt. The little back-buttoned jacket provides a sometime cover-up. We used Triplex dotted rayon. Simplicity printed pattern No. 2915 comes in sizes 11-15; 12-18.
- A boldly dotted fabric is well-adapted to this sleeveless dress with its cape collar and diagonal closing. We used Ship Ahoy, an Everglaze cotton by Riegel. Simplicity printed pattern No. 2909 comes in junior-miss and misses’ sizes.
- This becoming dress for a young matron has a soft collar ending in a tie. Note the slanted pockets. We made it in Cohama Silsurrah, a rayon-and-silk twill. Simplicity’s Slenderette printed pattern No. 2921 comes in misses’ and women’s sizes.
- Sturdy enough for playtime, yet pretty enough to wear to a summer-afternoon party, this dress is made of Dimple Dot cotton by Bates. The bodice is fitted; the skirt, full. Bands and bows of the fabric provide the only trimmings. (See the detailed view on the opposite page.) Simplicity printed pattern No. 2913 comes in junior-miss and misses’ sizes.
