This is a 1941 pattern. Dolman sleeves like this were popular in the early 40s but dropped off with the war. Thought it would be nice in wool crepe for winter.
Again, I'm looking for a winter outfit so will probably go with bracelet length sleeves. I've never sewn a peplum before and not too sure that it will suit me. If it works I'm hoping I can adapt it for my pansy dress reconstruction.
Love the bow detail! I think this is such a librarian's outfit.
