1930s bias Capsule wardrobe D30-5156PR EvaDress Patterns hats Howard Greer jacket Katharine Hepburn Kimono My Personal Dressmaking Pattern TourAlexandra Reynolds
This 11-piece pattern originally by Butterick is a very scarce pattern for Howard Greer's design for a costume as worn by Miss Hepburn in an R.K.O. Radio Picture', being her first starring role in 'Christopher Strong'.

In a sort of Advents-Kalendar way, I will post 'red' for each day of December through Christmas and link the image as closely as possible to EvaDress Patterns (in pattern tour form)! Here is the thirteenth, 1880's Dress with jet beaded polonaise, photo per: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a3/96/fb/a396fb18b0331481a85d83cd8bb13df1.jpg Sew the look using our 1885 Grenadine Mantle pattern: Originally by Haper's Bazaar, this wrap was made in Grenadine with velvet 'figures' or motifs in its weave. Today, a gauze or very fine jacquard may be used instead. I likened this pattern to the extant example for the Grenadine mantle sleeve embellishment of jet beads on...

In a sort of Advents-Kalendar way, I will post 'red' for each day of December through Christmas and link the image as closely as possible to EvaDress Patterns (in pattern tour form)! Here is the sixth, A rather raspberry-filled-looking confection, as it were.... Image per: http://rubylane.com/ Sew the look using our 1885 Pelerine Mantle pattern: Originally from Harper's Bazaar, this simple three-piece Mantle pattern can be lengthened to fashion it similarly to the extant example at top. Making it in a luxe fabric such as velvet or brocade with a fancy trim would warrant it a supreme evening wrap!
