Vogue 5770 - Women's Smock
Vogue patterns from this era don't show up very often. Vogue has always marketed itself as a fashion leader, yet the design of the envelope, while perfectly adequate and informative, doesn't have the lovely style that McCall had adopted a few years earlier with their smock.
It's also surprising to see Vogue producing a pattern for a utilitarian garment. But what a wonderful design they've produced! The bound edges provide a very neat finish, as do the bound button holes
The tone of the instructions is that of a careful teacher with very high standards.
