Enid Gilchrist, Pattern Book No.7

This book which came to me from my mum but originally from my Nanna is one of the many lovely vintage patterns that I have been given. This book offers lots of variety for young girls dresses 6 -12 years. You have to draft the pattern as per their diagram with measurements. Each pattern piece has a starting point and it gives good directions. Seam allowance is not included so you must remember when you cut your fabric.

These dresses are just so cute and you can see some of the pattern pieces with the measurements for drafting them. I will be attempting to make some dresses for my girls with these patters at some stage.
