From Tuppence Ha'penny:

The Forces Sweetheart is a princess-seamed button-through cut on classic 1940s lines, with shaped collar, darted short sleeves or long bishop sleeves, and a slim A-line skirt. This is a faithful reproduction of an original early 40s Hollywood pattern, which I've given the Tuppence Ha'penny treatment, adding cup size variations and grading to a full size range. Comfortable and versatile, this dress will make a useful addition to your wardrobe for everyday wear, suitable for home, errands or office.
