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
