Summer dress

One (of many) recently finished summer dresses. 



This is the pattern I used from the mid 60's:

I was happy to find a fabric similar to what was originally modeled on the pattern. I used a white cotton batiste lining and two purple buttons on each side of the pockets.

  2. This whole look is very Mia Farrow and I LOVE IT!!! I don't think many people could pull off that low waist, but it's adorable on you.

  5. Oh, I love it. I love that shape it's the exact shape i'm looking for in a pattern. Looks so much better on you than in the drawings!

  6. Your blog looks lovely and so do your creations. It's the strangest thing, though, to see these old patterns being used again! Tee hee...I learned how to sew in 1972, so some of the patterns look familiar.
