See below for a (long) review of this pattern:
'If you fear the unmarked vintage pattern, this is a great opportunity to work with a "vintage" pattern that has everything marked out for you. The instructions are easy to follow for anyone with a little vintage pattern sewing experience. I would purchase more fabric than recommended. I especially like that this pattern includes three different views and can create three very different looks. There are quite a few special vintage touches in this pattern and I have never seen a gathered neckline like this in a contemporary pattern. The cascade addition to the skirt front is lovely, but be aware that the wrong side of your fabric may show. I would recommend a hand rolled hem. I will definitely be sewing this one again - with short sleeves, in a patterned fabric, with the added peplum - the possibilities are endless.'
