1960 Vintage Pattern HELP!
Hi, guys! It's been a while since I've visited but I would be grateful for some help with this pattern also the first garment I am making! There is a slight problem though and I don't feel advanced enough to start tinkering with measurements!

My bustline is 23" in front (which doubled is 46") which I assume is the measurement I would use for the pattern however the largest given is 36".

Then I am even more confused as the blocking measurements for the 36" bust is then 39 inches. Is this the true finished size of the items, that 3" are added? So would I knit for 43" considering that blocking would add 3"??? I'm so confused!


1. Roughly how many stitches would I cast on for the size I need?
2. How to smock as directed in the pattern?
3. Would I need to put any increases and decreases anywhere?

One more thing, if anyone more experienced could tell me about the yarn (Bear or Fleishers Win-Sport, I think!) as I cannot find out what ply it is or how to choose a similar yarn as I cannot work out the ply or gauge! Thank you so much in advance!

Here is the pattern:
