50s Elegant Dress

An “all around” gathered skirt joins an elongated bodice. Low, wide neck-line in front, higher in the back. The collar in back continues over the arms to form cap sleeves. Short jacket with single button closing at the flat shaped collar. Three quarter length set-in sleeves. A genuine vintage sewing pattern has been previously used and has been counted and verified complete apart from the under bodice back piece which has been replaced with a very neat and precise tracing with markings on tissue. The instruction sheets are present. The envelope is quite creased and worn in places.
