Misses Size 14 / Bust 34", Waist 26", Hip 36"
This super rare 1950s Elsie Ames teatimer pattern is uncut, complete and still factory folded. I believe this is one of her earliest patterns as the brand name is "Hawaiian" (all of her later patterns were "Polynesian" Patterns) and some of the markings on the printed pattern pieces appear to be made by hand.
The stylish Asian style tunic features Chinese knot closures down the front, front and back darts for a slim fit, side hemline slits with knot closures or applied trim, and cap sleeves made with or without slits. The tunic can be made with a Mandarin collar or a plain bound neckline, and it can be made to open all the way down the front or as a pullover style. The Capri pants have side slits with optional Chinese knot closures at the knee, waistline darts and a back zipper.
The pattern, instructions and envelope are all in very good condition, except there is some darkening of some of the paper due to age.
