As the description on this 30 year old vintage’ pattern says this is a “Pull-over-the-head” dress. I styled it into top, the fabric I used is the bottom of a dress that I had for ages and never wore and needed re-fashioning. The sleeve yoke was from a pair of lace tights that was ready to be disposed of, instead of a sleeve band I used elastic to give the top a softer look, rather than a hem I zig-zag the edge of the v- neck. – So this item is part refashion and part up-recycle. The pattern is from Style Patterns C.1979.
