Okay, this has "quota" written all over it, right? Somebody ran out of ideas for interesting necklines, saw her pinking shears, and, in desperation, hacked this one out.
Which is a shame, because once you get past "OMG WHAT BIT YOUR NECK??" the yoke on the skirt is really cute, and actually almost modern.
Anyway, it's from Lanetz Living (again) and you still have a few days to bid. You can certainly alter it to remove the sawtooth effect without too much trouble.
The other thing I love about this illustration is that it TOTALLY looks as if the woman in the red dress was originally a brunette, and that they drew a blonde wig on her. "Hey, there's no blonde on this envelope — blondes sell patterns!" "Just draw it on top. Nobody will notice." "It kinda makes her head look freakish." "I said, NOBODY WILL NOTICE!"

i love how it says “easy to make,” as if the woman in this dress would be easy to, er, get into bed.
I dunno–I kind of like the sawtooth neckline. Reminds me of one of those little picture-hanger things, that you nail to the back of the picture frame, and that’s never in quite the right spot to make the picture hang straight.
I look at the sawtooth neckline and I think, “Huh, you want me to turn totally gratuitous points.” Nope, not gonna!
