Playing with 40’s playsuit patterns— difficult and fun. The most difficult thing was probably making the sweetheart collar symmetrical (I didn’t have any tracing paper) as well as the very poofy sleeves! The pattern actually called for inserts to make the sleeves poofier. I wouldn’t suggest it— I did and they’re ridiculous.
