Patterns for Rebecca Rubin

Since I am researching and sewing for Rebecca a lot lately, (okay, I'm a little obsessed) I wanted to make a list of the patterns out there for her era. I do not own all of these. This list may be updated over time.

I feel that there are fewer patterns out there for this period, so it helps to keep track.

Also, why do almost all these patterns have pleated skirts? I'd like to see more dress patterns for this era minus the pleats, please. It gets repetitive.

I would also like to see more patterns for clothing items that are not dresses. Keeper's Dolly Duds Simplicity 1179 pattern has a coat, but I would also like to see patterns for pajamas and swimsuits and bathrobes and other things.

Please share any patterns that I have missed!

  1. Hi, this is Linounettematha from AGPT :)

    There's this free one : It's adapted from a 1909 Semaine de Suzette pattern. The original pattern (in French) recommended to pair the sundress with a shirt "of colored cotton, white silk or flannel". It's pleated, but on the sides.

    Med Welch has a few options that look early 1900s to me, but I have never tried any.

    Bunny Bear has a simple but cute sailor dress :
