Description: This was an idea from an earlier century and especially popular during WW2 to makeover existing clothes with minimal materials and at little expense; (also I believe the cotton you could use was "off the ration"). However, this pattern was printed in the 1980s, when such frilled collars and cuffs became quite fashionable again
The pattern in excellent condition.
