The simple little waist in the costume above is cut all in one piece with the fullness at the neck and sleeves held in place by ribbons that run through casings. Mull or some soft material was chosen. Patterns for the waist came in six sizes: 32 to 42 inch bust measurement and required 3 yard and seven-eighths of 44-inch wide material. The skirt was formed of three straight sections, and came in four sizes: 22 to 28 inches waist measurement. It required seven yards of 44-inch wide fabric.
