This is a sundress I made from a 1940s slip pattern. I didn’t want it to look like lingerie, so I fully lined it, cut out the back and made the dress tie in the back. A little shout out goes to JuneSpoon. Her variations of the coffee date dress inspired me to put an interesting twist on an existing pattern. So while the skirt part of this dress is true to the original pattern, the alterations made to the bust and back make it a totally different dress. This is the perfect light-weight summer dress.
