Ladies’ One or Two Piece Circular Skirt No. 7375

Ladies’ One or Two Piece Circular Skirt No. 7375

7375—Ladies’ One or Two-Piece Circular Skirt, in Long or Medium Sweep or Dip Length, with an Inverted Box-Plait at the Back or in Habit Style, and with or without the Yoke. (Equally Desirable for Plain, Striped or Plaided Goods, made up without a Centre Seam or with Matched Bias Edges in Front.)

Description

A smart skirt that is equally desirable for plain, striped or plaided goods made up without a center seam or with matched bias edges in front is here represented.

Oxford-gray zibeline was the material chosen for the construction in one instance, and a brown, black and white plaid in the other. The mode is of circular shaping, and darts afford smooth adjustment over the hips.

The back may be in habit style or display an inverted box-plait, and provision is made for a long or medium sweep or dip length. The addition of the yoke is a matter of preference, and measurement of about four yards is allowed at the lower edge in the medium sizes.

Dressmaker Options

The materials generally selected for this skirt style are Cheviot, tweed, hopsacking, canvas, broadcloth, Venetian and tailored suitings.

A stylish development may be evolved from navy-blue mohair, or brown checked cheviot may be employed with good results.

Pattern Information

Pattern 7375 is in 9 sizes from 20 to 36 inches, waist measure. For 24 inches waist or 41 inches hip, the one- piece skirt with yoke will need 3 3/8 yards of material 50 inches wide; for the two-piece bias skirt without yoke, 4 3/8 yards in the same width will be needed. Price of pattern, 20 cents.
