It's a little bit of a weird pattern...at first I was freaked out because I couldn't tell whether it had been used & I thought that the markings on the pattern pieces had faded because I couldn't see any...then I realized that it had been used (there are markings in pencil & some lovely old-fashioned writing) so the pieces are ready to go. But there still aren't any markings (darts, grain lines, etc). I don't know how the original owner figured out how what shape & size the pieces should be and I can't tell if the 5/8" seams have been added.
The instructions do say to add the 5/8" seam, so I'm guessing the previous owner did so.

the pattern pieces!
Can you see the G & the small & large dots? I'm guessing the G & the small dots are clues; I'll look at the instructions more closely to see what the small dots mean. I expect the large ones are just part of the pattern-making process.
Finally, here's the back of the pattern.
I'm using an old sheet I got at the Salvation Army for the muslin...we'll see how it goes. I still haven't decided what to do w/ my amazing double-sided fabric Marc Jacobs' wool from Mood: lined or unlined? Reversible? Is that even possible? Or make contrasting cuffs & pockets to show the reverse? I may have to head over the Allison @ Bits of Thread to help me with these decisions...
