From a 50s pattern, a full-skirted, pleated dress with a large notched collar and buttons on the front. It closes on the side with a zipper to the waist and a fold-over flap that snaps. I made it out of pink cotton with tiny black dots and it is really cute! I also made my belt, out of black cotton and vintage plastic buckle shaped like a flower.
Cotton from Jo-Ann. It’s pale pink with tiny black dots.
