This is stash busting at its very best, both the fabric and the patten were my Nan’s, and passed onto me. Horrah, free dress!
In the interest of not looking like I was wearing a muu-muu, I made some slight changes to the patten, I omitted the facings and zipper, shortened the length and deepened the neckline.
Simplicity Patten 8889 (Printed in 1970), 1.8m of a verrry narrow cotton print fabric, thread
