My Favorite Vintage Pattern of the Day

This front buttoned top is tucked at the front shoulders and darted in back. A double ruffle peplum graces the front for hip interest. The extended shoulders and cuff trimmed bracelet sleeves are cut in one with the bodice front. In style 1 a double peplum is faced with self fabric. In style 2 the peplum is finished with a double bias binding. The slimly flared skirt is made of contrasting fabric.
