1940s Advance pattern cropped top

I had never experienced a pattern before they had printed markings on them, so i was confused at first when all the tissues were completely blank! Then i read the instructions and realized there were different sized perforations on the tissue, and those were the markings indicating darts, button hole, etc. whew, i was intimidated, but actually this was not too hard. i think it would look nice without the ruffles as well. this pattern came as a three piece outfit with shorts and a button front skirt, and they call it a playsuit. how cute is that!
i plan on making the entire outfit, definitely!

    It’s sooo cute! I would love to see the pattern envelope. I’ve been too chicken to tackle my unprinted pattern. Good for you!

      i will try to add a photo of the pattern front soon,it’s so adorable. i transferred the pattern onto parchment paper and used ink to transfer the different sized perforations so it was easier to “read”
