#VintagePatternADay – Day Three

Today’s #vintagepatternaday is a mail order pattern for a ladies’ vest, top or jerkin with a nipped waist and button detail. It is not dated, but my best guess is late 1940’s/early 1950’s.

I’d love to make this in view B in a bold plaid, or view A as a solid-colored vest over a cute top. Miraculously, this pattern appears to have never been used or even ever unfolded. All instructions are included. I love the model’s neck scarf and the thin sweater she’s wearing underneath.

How would you style this top?
