It is quite easy to find sewing patterns to make bungalow dresses and they are simple to make however getting the correct fabric is a little harder - this one is a very typical 1940's print.
The box also had several 1950's hostess aprons - little dinky aprons so that you still look smart when your husband comes home from work and you have his supper on the table (and his slippers warming by the fire!).
Also several pairs of gloves - in all sorts of colours. Gloves, hat, shoes and handbag should always match!
Long gloves for the evening
And always a hat.....
