Thanks, everyone! I really like the cut and fit of these vintage patterns; it makes the extra work worthwhile. Aly, I do plan to participate in the vintage contest but this is a top I had sewn earlier. I am working on other patterns, though!

So gorgeous! This is a classic look that definitely can be worn today! Defined ties and sleeves are back! They are popping up everywhere!

Really lovely. Thank you for de-mystifying vintage patterns. I am still too inexperienced to try them, but it helps to have you explain what to expect from them.
