Sewing Objective: create that cute striped number with the retro cut out neckline.
It is no secret that I am mad about 60’s mod looks. I flipped when I found this pattern Simplicity 7288 dated 1970 in my archive. The style of the views shift on the front the envelope. The design is quite basic, a line shape french darts yet the hem goes from mod late 60’s mini to 70’s mindi to boho maxi in a flash.
Implementing some cute little buttons and a vintage zip from my stash and maximizing on my fabric scores, I cannot help but to boast that I spent less than 10 US dollars on this garment.
Down side to this pattern my original was missing a piece; it did not have the front neckline facing piece with the CUTOUT !?. Insert: sad face. No fear, I drafted it myself, as nothing would stop that cut out from happening. and theen due to the fact that I had elected to line the dress I thought that I could just cut the facing pieces in interfacing and fuse the facing-interfacing to the lawn lining. It ended being neat, clean and without bulk.
