Illustrated instructions make construction easy! Options for long sleeves and short sleeves; darted, gathered, or pleated bodices; front or back closures; and five different necklines. Instructions for creating a period correct nursing dress, perfect for nursing mums! Period fashion plates included to inspire your creations. Pattern appendix explains how to adjust the bodice front for ladies sized D and DD. You could easily make a dozen different styles by mixing and matching necklines, sleeves, and bodice treatments. The pattern is rated "intermediate" because of the fitting techniques involved, but a patient beginner should be able to navigate the instructions without too much trouble.
