Description

Here’s a dress refashioned for my sister from an old 1960s housedress. We used Vogue 1004 as the base pattern and designed our own neckline. It buttons up the back with flower-shaped buttons from the original robe. I also made her matching hair bows. We think it’s a great retro 60s dress now!
