Katharine Hepburn Jacket
Years ago, I found this incredibly rare 1933 Butterick 'Starred' pattern at an estate sale.
Butterick did a limited series of only four 'Starred' patterns featuring Hollywood designs worn by screen starlets of the 1930's.
This particular pattern was based on Howard Greer's ensemble design for Katharine Hepburn in her first starring film role in 'Christopher Strong'.
It is something I only dreamed of finding, so once I did, I HAD to make that jacket!
When I wrote for Threads Magazine about this pattern, details such as underarm gusset construction were outlined.
