Early 1900's memorable dress: W.J. Dupee 1129 Dazzling Dress / ca. 1920's / 1930's
The cellophane wraper on this pattern had the name W.J. Dupee on it and my research only showed an old dry goods store with that name. Hmmm - mystery. A lovely lady called me about this pattern that had been in her family and she wanted to pass it on. It is in factory folds -
It's a bit hard to date because there is no date or envelope with postage to go by. I estimated. If you have any information about this pattern distributor or the era it was made let me know.
For you rock and roll circle skirt lovers: Butterick 7487 Rock & Roll Full Skirt or Jumper / ca. 1955 a bobby soxer chic pattern! I always laugh when I see a jumper that can easily be converted to a sleeveless summer dress - I don't picture this jumper as anything but a sleeveless dress.
