The stalwart women who conquered the 19th century American prairie wore full yet practical housedresses of washable cotton, usually with an apron.

Folkwear's prairie dress falls to the ankles in voluminous gathers from a gracefully rounded yoke. It has long sleeves gathered at the shoulders and into buttoned cuffs. The ruffled collar is set into a collar band, and the dress has pockets set into both side seams. The deep front opening typical of this era closes with buttons in the yoke; hooks and eyes can be used to fasten the long opening.

The flounced apron has two keyhole pockets and a waistband that buttons in back. Instructions for decorative feather stitch are included.

For contemporary wear, this dress is charming in the authentic version, loose or aproned or it can be cut to street length. If you prefer, the front opening can be shortened and the neck can be finished with the collar band only.

Suggested fabrics: For Dress: Soft fabrics such as calico, gingham, muslin, lightweight cotton; cotton rayon, or wool challis.
For Apron: Light or medium-weight cotton such as gingham, broadcloth, or muslin.

Pattern includes Sizes Small (5' - 5'3"), Average (5'4" - 5'7") and Tall (5'8" - 5'11") in one package.
