Made from Simplicity 1779 which is the same as Simplicity 0305 (my pattern envelope purchased from the promotional rack at JoAnn’s, above the pattern drawers. It is neither difficult nor a “quick and easy” project to sew. Features (1) Tie that encircles the neck with ends to form a “bow” (2)) The neckline also has a bias facing (in the same fabric) stitched over the neck tie before it reaches the front placket, and turned to the inside (3) Bust darts (4) Sleeve cuffs with 3/4" wide sleeve vent formed by a turned-in top-stitched hem between 2 back-stitching reinforced points (5) Flattering side contour/shaping.
