Simplicity 1942 4102 Shy Sister of the Chicken Dress

I did the fitting on Simplicity 4102 (the Chicken Dress) in 2011 and it works pretty well, so . . . away we go.  I went home last night and cut most of the bodice pieces.

The fabric is a slate-blue (darker in real life) VIP mini print.  The pattern is pink and maroon so I'm using maroon rick-rack trim and buttons.

Badly-drawn concept mock-up:

I kind of hope, too, that I can use this to help me re-fit New York 1490, since it was such a mess.  This has a similarly relaxed bodice fit.
