Description

Advance 4463 was found on eBay earlier this year and was so taken by the design features I just had to have it. Unfortunately, there were no instructions but I wasn’t deterred.

The fabric is a heavy cotton of navy with green stripes made up of tiny dots, usually used for quilting.

Construction of this dress was surprisingly easy. I used the image on the front and line drawings on the back of the pattern envelope as a reference and just went for it.

More details on this dress can be found on my blog: anewballofstring.blogspot.com

    Believe it or not, the stripes actually helped in making this dress. One of the envelope illustrations is made in a striped fabric, and without having the instructions, I just ‘followed the lines’. It was a life-saver!

    Retro chic! Love it, and your manipulation of the stripes is very flattering!
