I made this using alexphil’s 60s dress pattern. It was relatively easy to work with and I’m quite happy with the result – gonna wear it to uni in the fall.
My mom bought the fabric in ’85 when she was pregnant with me to make herself a maternity dress, but never got around to it – now she gave the fabric to me.
The dress is fully lined yellow inside.
