Folkwear sewing pattern number 239 Blonde Bombshell
The mid-1950s celebrated femininity with tight-waisted, full-skirted dresses like this--the Blonde Bombshell. Fitted waists, halter tops, and circle skirts became popular again every few years.
For summer, this dress makes up easily in plain or printed cottons (think tropical!). For winter parties, try taffeta, satin, or crepe. The Blonde Bombshell is as versatile as it is flattering.
The dress is very easy to sew, with only five pattern pieces. Its bodice consists of midriff front and back. The halter ties at the back of the neck in View A or is fastened with hooks and eyes for View B. A low calf-length circular skirt fits smoothly into the waist in back, gathers softly in front, and zips up the center back.
Also included are patterns and instructions for a knitted bolero sweater, the perfect cover-up that hugs the bodice and fastens with one button in front. Knit it in a mohair-blend yarn in a simple stockinette stitch. Complete instructions are included.
Pattern includes Misses' sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16
