Vintage 1940s womens playsuit pattern from Penelope Rose

Simplicity 3838; ©1943; Misses' and Women's Culotte and Play Suit.  This is a classic fashion, smartly tailored for active sportswear.  The bodice, softly gathered to shoulder yokes, is finished with a convertible collar and is buttoned down the cent front through band trimming. The bodice is gathered at the lower edge and joins the culotte at the waistline under a belt. Inserted pockets are trimmed with piping.  The culotte is perforated to make the short play suit. Make it with long sleeves, gathered to a wristband or with short sleeves turned back at the edges to form cuffs.
