This is my birthday treat!! The pattern was bought 1 year ago (again for my birthday) and this year for my birthday I splashed out and finally bought the fabric. The Simplicity pattern is from the seventies and was size 12, so firstly I altered the pattern to my measurements. I bought the end of the roll and only had 2m to work with, so have shortened the sleeves and hem, didn’t have enough for the tie belt. It’s lined at the bodice and skirt and has 3 buttons to fasten. I love this dress, so practical and will see myself making many more.
faille and cotton lining, 3 buttons, hook & eyes
