No, the ruffle on the first sleeve is lace, but the second is pleated chiffon or georgette. The neckline is very different ...

Misfit, those vintage covers are just the type of thing I used to steal from my mom!!

The more I've looked at it, the more I agree with you.

I love vintage covers!

Yes the lower cover has a lot more ruffles. Does the first book really need 3 authors :o

Perhaps it's only one author, but she could not decide on a pen name. :D
