Looking for classic 1950s cardigan pattern
I would like to find something similar to J. Crew's Jackie cardigan. It can be seen here:

Does anyone know of a pattern for a cardigan like this? I would prefer a free one, if possible, with waist shaping.

Thanks in advance to those who respond with ideas.

Here's a few free you can probably work with.

Knitting Pure and Simple has some with classic lines in heavier yarn, but you'd have to buy one.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

These do cost, but they are the real thing, have fantastic selection and they have incredible customer service:

I am emtranced with that site! Could spend too many hours just wandering. Unfortunately old enough to remember some of those '30's and '40's styles.

There is a similar one here with waist shaping although there is a giant chart on the chest you can choose to ignore.You would also have to extend the arms,but I personally love 3/4 cardigans and have a ton.

Here's one that's entirely different but very period appropriate(so I plan to make one!).
"I teach you the overman. Man is something that shall be overcome. What have you done to overcome him?
All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is the ape to man? A laughingstock or a painful embarrassment. And man shall be just that for the overman: a laughingstock or a painful embarrassment..."
