Actress Betty Grable was best known as *the* pin-up girl of World War II. However, she couldn’t wear a bathing suit all of the time;-) This lovely 1940's Hollywood Pattern features a dress designed not only to show off your legs, but to also do it elegantly! “The skirt features front fullness below a shallow yoke and joins the blouse under a narrow tied belt. The blouse is gathered below a dropped-shoulder yoke, front and back, and very full bishop sleeves with deep cuffs are featured. Bracelet length sleeves also included. Low two-button-closing below narrow shawl collar.”
