This 1950 reproduction sewing pattern features a button-front jacket dress, darted at the neck and waist and seamed at center back. Both long or 3/4 sleeves, cut in one with the bodice, are made with a gusset for ease in moving arms. The rounded peplum extends just across the front to side-back seams. The side drape in view 1 is attached at the right-side back seam. The straight skirt has a concealed slide fastener under the fly front, two short darts in the back and side-back seams (no side seams).
