I've decided that this will be my selection. It is a 1943 pattern, and I like it for several reasons. The back princess seams will be helpful in fitting adjustments, and I love the insert detail at the front/side. This is an "unmarked" pattern, i.e. no words or symbols printed on the pattern--just small "holes" in the pattern. The instruction sheet has the "legend" for what the punched markings represent. I traced the pattern off yesterday and marked with words and arrows. Interestingly, the seams are .5" with the underarm seam being .75". This is noted in the instrction sheet since there are no markings on the pattern itself.
The muslin is started, but I haven't had a chance to take photos yet.
