I made this dress for Indi when we went to England last year. It was made from some vintage fabric that I had for years but never quite knew what to use it for. I found the 1978 Simplicity pattern in an op shop and thought it too adorable to pass.
This pattern definately tested me! I did learn new skills though like button holes, gathering and sewing with slippery velvet!
Vintage cotton, velvet and buttons.
If I make this dress again I will start the gathered sleeve frills from the front as they didnt come out evenly, so if I do the same mistake atleast it will be at the back and not the very noticable front!
