Description:  Beautiful Dreamer:  Pattern for gown in two views and two lengths  The prototype of this delightfully feminine gown bespeaks the humblest of origins.  "49 Cents Buys this Muslin Gown", boasted the 1902 Edition of the couturier of rural America, the Sears &Roebuck Catalog.  Several pages of style and fabric variations (all white) attest to its popularity, and the country lady anxiously awaited the arrival of her dream gown.  View A has a ruffled neckline and is cut just below the knee.  View B features a wide triangular ruffled collar and the traditional anklelength.  Both views are full and flowing, with three deep box pleats in back; fronts gather into a gently rounded, ruffled bodice yoke.  Side seam godets add a slight flare.  Both are closely fitted to the upper body with a deep buttoned opening at left front.  Long puffed sleeves are finished with slip-over wrist bands and ruffles which fall gracefully over the hands.  13 pieces, COMPLETE and UNCUT.  Circa 1902, printed in 1983.  Min Bid$  7.95  buy it now $15.99
