      Thank you M :) I love some of the trimming details in this pattern- though I wish I’d measured the pattern pieces before cutting and sewing! The arms are a bit on the snug side :P

      A discontinued one by Simplicity. They have a new one that looks more period accurate. :) Sorry for the delay in response- totally missed seeing your comment!
