Patterns From The Past: McCall's 3549 - A Cropped Jacket With Pants And Shorts

Today's pattern is McCall's Carefree Pattern number 3549, shown below in the first photo from a McCall's pattern booklet.
The jacket was sewn up in a pale plaid, with the pants in a lovely sort of a salmon pink.

Again, I love seeing that; I just think it's cool:

"Sew Up Your Social Life", with fabrics from J.C. Penney, and McCall's patterns - sounds like a good combination to me!
You know, back in 1973, you could buy fabric at LOTS of places!
The back of the pattern:
Oh, and and I guess I should include a picture of pattern number 3771, shown as a tunic in the same photo as the jacket and pants:

And there you have it : two more in my series of "Patterns From The Past."
