Autumn Joy!

Added Oct 17, 2012

Minneapolis, Uni...






1960’s shirtwaist dress with an oversized collar. I’ve had this pattern in my stash for a while, and when I found the fun border print cotton lawn I knew I had a match. Then upon finding the green leather belt I had an outfit.

This is quite possibly my favorite thing that I have sewed thus far.

You can find more on my blog.

Material Notes

Cotton lawn border print, silk organza used for interfacing

      I’m glad you liked that touch! I should learn to accessorize more because it really does make a difference.

      Oh thatnk you Haela! I’m usually inspired to sew more dresses when I see other people’s finished projects too.

      Thank you! The pattern I used was SImplicity 3068. It is a vintage pattern that I picked up from a garage sale, so it is no longer in production. If you are having trouble finding it, Butterick has a reproduction pattern that has a similar collar and full skirt. That one is B5747.

      Thank you. It was so fun to see this come together because I really wasn’t sure about the fabric until I brought it home and it with the pattern – it just fit.
