This was my pattern, which is dated 1946. When I opened it to press the pattern pieces, I discovered that the instructions were missing as well as all the pants pieces. This was of course after I bought the fabric for both. So the top is genuinely vintage and the pants are close-ish based on the line drawings. 

 I made them out of flannel, so they are comfortable. The top went together very easily. I essentially made view A with short sleeves. My only change was to omit the collar button, since I never wear things buttoned to the neck anyways.

 The pants are slightly giant, but I bet they would look more retro if I ironed them with a crease down the front.

More pictures of the pants on my blog, if you’re interested!
