Brand: Simplicity Number: 5793 Size: 20 (bust 40, waist 32, hips 38) Date: 1964 Condition: good, pattern is complete and in good shape. Instructions are included. Envelope has some minor wear and tears in the upper corners and right edge. Chic dressy outfit. This pattern contains pieces to make a suit and overblouse. I wasn't familiar with the term overblouse, but upon looking it up I found it to be a blouse fashioned for wearing outside the waistband of a skirt or slacks. So there you have it, a blouse that you don't have to tuck in. The overblouse has back button closing with notch detail at the front darts and neck edge. Can be made either sleeveless or with short sleeves. The skirt is an a line shape with six gores and dart fitting at the waistband. The jacket is lined with below elbow length sleeves and braid trimmed collar and welts. A very classy look, would be great to wear to the office. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions just let me know!
