A very casual dress, made from an old pattern. Had to adjust the pattern a bit, in order to make the dress fit me better. Bought the pattern on ebay, it’s from a French fashion magazine dated 1967.

Material Notes

Dress: rusty coloured cord
Lining: a darker coloured cotton





“Femme D’Aujourd’Hui No. 1146”, 19th of April 1967.
