I had read descriptions of really old patterns on the internet - apparently the pattern pieces were printed on plain tissue without any writing.
Ack! I uncorked some wine and tried to guess which mangled piece was which. They were so ahem, old, they were like perforated kleenex.
The pants were a cinch. Pants haven't evolved much over time.
The top was an adventure in guesswork. Modern patterns have markings printed on them where you are meant to gather, add darts or match seams. Old patterns just have a series of punched holes. I just gave up and winged the collar which is why it looks nothing like it's supposed to. Let me divert your attention to the more successful button front.
Because all V really wanted was buttons.
