The vintage pattern is from Bettyb label, of which I was commissioned to make this piece. See http://bettybgals.blogspot.com/ . Bettyb makes easy to wear womenswear made from deadstock fabrics and yarn. Available from Mensah boutique, Portabello Road, London, U.K.
...I rewrote some of the pattern to add the required crochet ruffles on the cross-over straps and the leg hem to create a cute playsuit. The ruffles are inline with other Bettyb garments, which are named 'Daphne'.
