Simplicity 8228 Version 1 (1969)
Dress made for Pattern Review contest.
I made this dress for 1969 theme party, as well as entering into the Pattern Review Contest. Theme was LWD. I didn’t end up wearing it, (WHITE is not my colour)! I do however like how the dress has turned out! Will find a time and place to wear it…somewhere..
I made the tabs as to instructions but didn’t like how they looked, created larger ones and fixed to waist and added buttons.
1 /1/2 mtrs crocheted fabric
1 1/2 cotton lining
