Interest in Chinese fashion was increasing after the US worked alongside China in World War II. Although the idea of communism was still seen as a threat, there was a newfound level of interest in the country after they proved their worth in the eyes of Americans. As such, Americans began to adopt styles common in movies depicting China to such an extent that sewing patterns were distributed nationwide.
Pictured is the cover art for the McCall pattern 4911 (Misses Oriental Style).
