Late 1920s - Early 1930s Beach Pyjamas Dress
Late 1920s - Early 1930s Beach Pyjamas Dress Sewing Pattern by Folkwear
Beach Pyjamas, made of silk, linen or cotton, often in bright, cubist-inspired prints, were the height of summer and resort fashion in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and were worn from the afternoon into the evening. They generally consisted of wide-legged trousers and a jacket of matching fabric. Slightly more casual one-piece pyjamas for daytime wear sported decorative collars, bindings, or sashes, and were sometimes worn with a coordinating bolero jacket.
Our one-piece sleeveless Pyjama features a full shawl collar that wraps in front and falls gracefully over the shoulders to the back. The wide palazzo pants give the appearance of a skirt. A contrasting or self-fabric sash ties around the waist.
For day, make the Pyjamas in cool linen or bright printed cotton. For evening, they are lovely in silk or rayon.
Multi-sized pattern includes bust sizes 30-42, waist sizes 23-35, and hip sizes 32-44 all in one package. Please see back cover image for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
