I got this pattern several months ago to make a cooler-weather dress with. I love Miss Snooty on the left with her nose in the air! I made it up in a nice quality cotton, using the longer sleeves:
I didn't have quite enough fabric so I faced these so-fabulous cuffs with a co-ordinating print from the scrapbag:
I have been very happy with my last few vintage projects. I've found that the bust and waist darts fit exactly right, out of the package, which is almost uncanny. With modern patterns I find it necessary to fit every bodice to my dress form in order to get a nice fit and the smaller amount of ease I like. I think modern sewing patterns are just designed to be super-baggy, and I think I am built with a New Look bodice.
