Description

Year:1960’s
Description: “simple to make”A-shaped dress has highscooped neckline. Big Pockets.

Comments: Took in at bottom edge a little too flared for me. Would really only recommend this pattern for very thick cotton broadcloth. But I really love how this came out and it’s very much a put-on-and-go dress.

Fabric Cotton Broadcloth
