I finished this a few months ago with fabric from Hancock Fabrics. It' 100% cotton but is kinda stiff... Quilter's cotton maybe? I used Simplicity 2591 in a size 12. The bust area is smaller than most big 4 patterns even more so on version B than D. (I'll show D later.) I really wanted to do this with striped fabric like they show but I couldn't find anything springy and cute like theirs.
I lowered the collar an inch and gave it a scoop back for more interest. I like that it has a bit of a retro housewife look while still being cute and young.
