Description

This dress was made from a 1980’s pattern which I modified only slightly (unfortunately I no longer have it so I can’t include a picture). It’s a basic A-line pullover dress with pintucking detail on the top. You can’t see in the pictures but it hits slightly below the knee. I made it in a navy synthetic fabric (not exactly sure what it is!) which has nice drape. I’ve worn this dress so many times since I made it- it’s really versatile and comfortable too! You can see my post about this project on my blog, Scavenger Hunt: http://scavengerhunttheblog.blogspot.com

      Thank you! If you wanted to re-create it, I think the Anda dress pattern would be easy to modify to look like this.
