I used a 1970’s pattern (McCall’s 3733), and vintage fabric and zipper from my stash to make this dress. The Rayon challis and long sleeves make it pretty cosy. The dress ended up needing a lot of alterations, which made the process a bit complicated. I have to admit though the end result is actually pretty fine. If you want you can visit my blog to read more about my obsession with 1970’s sewing and music.
