This is a wonderful teen look. It reminds me a lot of Shirley Temple’s clothing from her teen films.
A teenager’s dress pattern, circa 1944. I love the cummerbund waist and the gathered shoulder yokes, reminiscent of my ladies’ 1940s “Swing” Dress Pattern. Note the option for a confirmation dress at the lower left-hand corner.
Another teen dress–this one with a bit of a "south-of-the-border" flavor to it.
