Simplicity 1942 4102 Shy Sister of the Chicken Dress Part III

Done!  Pix of me in it later.

My only beefs with this pattern are that the waist ties need to be at least eight inches longer to tie well (sorry, fabric rationing) and that the inset belt was drafted without ease. That is, the waistband for the 28-inch waist finished to an actual 28 inches, which, once you get all that skirt gathered in, fits but is a bit snug.  I'll add an inch if I make this again.
