are there any directions? All I got was the picture and diagram of pieces. They were not full size or anything. Did I get it all?

This pattern needsbetter instructions because I can't tell, either from the finished drawing or from the pieces themselves, how the waist is gathered and where the drape and loop go. I can't finish it. Wasted my fabric.:(

Sorry to hear about your difficulties. The pattern is an EXACT rendition of the 1927 pattern. The instructions do tend to be a bit vague because it was thought most women during the time as good enough sewing skills to complete the construction without extreme detail. Over time-patterns and instruction sheets got better- In any case, it's always good to mock up any pattern in muslin before attempting to complete a project in your final fashion fabric. If you're not familiar with muslins/toiles-Craftsy offers a number of classes that can help you. Good luck!
