I was super happy to see this since I have sewn up this vintage pattern and I am VERY curious about what changes they make when they re-release the vintage patterns. Here's my version called the 'Chocolate and Wine' Dress:
I opted for version 1, though I had originally thought about version 2 until I encountered the diabolical fabric loops for the teeny buttons which quickly prompted version 1 which closes with a zipper!
Here is the original pattern, which is Simplicity 3948 which I won in a giveaway from House of Pinheiro:
This is a great pattern and the options to mix it up (for example with a 'fauxlero' look) are plenty. I can't wait to grab one of the reissued patterns to look at it side-by-side with Simplicity 3948!
