My latest sewing project is this pink dress. Its sewn by a Mail Order #4874 printed vintage pattern with button-front bodice and full skirt with inverted pleats. This is also the only thing I know for certain about the pattern. I’m guessing that it is from late 1950 or early 1960. I have used dotted cotton fabric for this dress.
The pictures are taken by the wonderful Therese.
