Authentic vintage sewing patterns: This is a fabulous original dress making pattern, not a copy. Because the sewing patterns are vintage and pre owned, we check each vintage sewing pattern for completeness, for the pattern pieces and the instruction sheet. Please keep in mind these are vintage patterns that may show their age not perfect in appearance but still very usable. In many cases the vintage patterns have never been used and are uncut and factory folded.

Prominent Designer Mail Order A861; ca. 1954; Original by Esther Reifer - Misses' Sleeveless Sheath Dress and Shirt-Jacket
In Esther Reifer’s talented hands, summer’s favorite fashion – the jacket dress – takes on a look of special chic. Unlike so many costumes you’ve seen, this American designer’s dress and jacket look smart together – yet the dress by itself is equally important fashion-wise. Wear the ensemble to town in the morning – wear the dress alone for dinner and dancing in the evening. Mrs Reifer made her Original in contrasting fabrics – the dress in dramatic black pique, the “shirt-tail” jacket in red and white corded cotton.” (as stated in Ottawa Citizen, June 10th, 1954
