Brooklyn, New Yo...
I found this ponte knit at Mood Fabrics and immediately thought it would be perfect for this 1967 Wrap Around Dress pattern (Simplicity 7572) I had purchased via the Etsy shop, Found Alchemy.
The pattern comes in 3 lengths – mini, knee and ankle. The dress is made from just one piece of fabric so most of the work is finishing the armholes, neckline and hem. Instead of using a “braided trim” as directed -very 60s :) – i just finished the edges with bias tape.
It can be worn with the opening in the front or back. Even though the fabric is ponte knit, the length makes it read more formal, I think.
Can’t wait to find an excuse to wear it!
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
