The Jacket Features:

  • Collar options of notched at front and pleated or unpleated at the back, or “plain” or shawl collar.
  • Both collar options are squared at the back, similar to a “sailor” collar.
  • Optional shaped pockets and cuffs
  • Cut in two lengths- either a shorter jacket with no pockets, or a longer jacket.
  • Easily adaptable to WWI era looks!
  • Paired with a slim skirt, the jacket can carry you into the early 1920s looks.

The Skirt Features:

  • A high waist, hitting about 2″ above the natural waistline.
  • An A-Line cut that falls from the top of an fitted interior waistband (not fitted at natural waist)
  • Fastens at the front, under the stitched overlap which can be accented with buttons.
  • A fun shaped decorative applied waistband that can be accented with buttons.
  • Gathers at the back, peeking out from under the applied waistband
  • Cut in two lengths- a shorter length that is perfect for WWI, or a longer length that can work for earlier Edwardian styles.

This pattern includes original period instructions which are very minimal and mostly text only.

You can join along in progress posts on my blog for photos of how this goes together!  We also have a Facebook group you can join if you’d like to be part of a group making this pattern up together.

This Pattern Includes:

  • Primarily written instructions, which are very minimal, transcribed directly from this nearly century-old pattern.
  • New pattern markings, to aid in understanding the pattern piece (original was unmarked).
  • Addition of a new collar option, drafted by me.
  • A restored pattern based off of a period original with pieces tested and corrected to aid in ease of use.
  • New cutting charts and yardage complied by me
  • A multi-size pattern, all sizes in one packet.  The original was single size, in a 36″ waist.
  • Access to the public posts on my blog which will help with understanding this pattern and include photographs of the construction as it progresses
  • Free access to our private Facebook group, open to everyone who wishes to join.


This Pattern DOES NOT include:
  • NO step-by-step illustrations to go with instructions
  • NO cutting charts for individual sizes- all new cutting charts are for a stacked, graded pattern so some sizes may require less fabric.
  • NO detailed instruction, only the period instructions with a few additions by me
  • NO hem allowance given for the skirt, as with the original pattern. More fabric may be purchased or it may be finished with a facing.

About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived.  Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations.  Resto-Vival™ patterns are printed on sturdy bond paper instead of tissue and clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings.  These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment.  Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment.  Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns.  At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested.  You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail.  Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
