Description

This is a vintage Simplicity pattern 3474. Another dress my daughter got cuz I still need to learn how to alter a pattern :( to fit my size. Oh well fits her great! I’ll have to find something else to wear Christmas Eve. Love this green sheer fabric and the lining is a very light gray satin it was way cheep like $2.00 a yard. Gotta love that!! <><

    Gorgeous! I love to see these vintage patterns on real people since the drawings are always so distorted in the drawing.

    It’s even more beautiful than your lovely tree. It could use a petticoat to give it some oomph, though, for those extra-special occasions. It’s really cute!

    So cute! I love it! When altering the pattern, just measure your bust and your waist, and then use a measuring tape to figure out how big the garment would be once it’s made, then divide up the extra that you need! :)
