This is from a late 50s pattern. It has a stand-up collar, buttons down the front and a gathered bodice back. I made it from Jo-Ann’s new plaid fabric in a grey and green plaid. I hemmed the skirt and sleeves by hand and made self covered buttons. I really like how it turned out, at it was my first attempt to match plaid.More details and pictures on my blog
