This jacket and skirt was created by the designer Mainbocher and is stylish worn either as a uniform or daywear.
View A is a copy of the ARC Uniform worn during WWII.
View B is the same suit without the uniform details.
View A has a jacket (tunic) with upper stitch-down pleated pockets with buttoned flap, and large lower cargo pockets that have a bellows fold and a buttoned flap. The jacket is single breasted with a fold over lapel and collar. The sleeves are two piece and end simply at the wrist. The shoulders are a little wider as was popular in the 1940s.
The skirt is the same for both View A and B. The skirt is a six piece A-line with a waistband and side opening that buttons.
Two hats are included: A Visor Hat and a Garrison Cap.
These patterns are well researched and offer suggestions for modern & historical details. Sizes 6-34 all included in the pattern.
