For those of you that know about my obsession with 50s and 60s style clothing, I have found the perfect 50s-style dress pattern! It’s Simplicity 2176. I made this dress in two variations, so far, and of course made some tweaks. You can find all the project details at my sewing project home. For the 1st version, the cherries, I added red piping around the top flap-band and on the lime green version I added piping on the outer edges of the straps, along the princess bodice seams, and around the bottom of the top band. For both versions I did box pleats instead of the regular pleats and, of course, added pockets! You can find samples of awesome fabrics I’d love to use with this dress pattern.
