Found OOP Simplicity 5954 at the Salvation Army store,
the one with the princess-seamed side-panel jumper with 3 variations of necklines. Love the pocket effect for a soft linen or such and no zipper.
Haven't tried Princess seams in a long time, do you always do a muslin first of at least the top half?

I usually muslin a dress at least through the hips. Your pattern looks less fitted in the drawings than on the person. You could always measure and if there is sufficient ease, carry on without a muslin.
