at lower edge. The bodice buttons in the front
below the notched collar. The skirt joins the
bodice at natural waistline. You can make it
with either Bishop sleeves or short sleeves which
are darted into the armhole.

fabrics were very limited due to the war effort, so
anything would work, eg: Cotton, Linen, Viscose etc.
