I made this dress as part of my Spring Palette Challenge. The pattern in a vintage 1960’s Simplicity that I found at a charity shop for $0.50. This is my first time using a pattern that is drastically smaller than me, so it took some time and a few muslins to get a fit that I liked, but the end result is something that I am really happy with. My favorite part about the dress is the bright floral print of the fabric – it just makes me happy. For more, stop by my blog
