Description

I love the 60’s fashion! I made this dress to wear it at a dance show, but it’s also a pretty summer dress. I used a cotton lining for the skirt in this project too, to make it cooler in the summer heat. I made the skirt liningt narrower than the dress’ skirt, so as to avoid an exposure when the wind blew my dress up or the skirt flew up when I turned around while dancing! It worked out fine! This picture is in Barcelona!

This is pattern number 2884 of simplicity “it’s so easy”.

    This dress is really wonderful! I love the fabric also- the scale of the pattern transforms the shape- makes it grander! Beautiful!
