Description

I have seen so many lovely mod-style dresses using this re-issue pattern, I just had to try it too!
I had this boring beige fabric and them one day it hit me….I thought “I will make a shift dress with the beige stripey fabric and create a chevron effect with the stripes, that should make it more interesting!”

More project images and details on my blog!

    This is a very cute dress, along with your spotted variation too. The 60’s were so exciting for fashion, wish I had been there at the time! I’ve been thinking of trying out this pattern – glad to see it made up.
