Very easy dress I made with a New Look pattern from the 90’s. I shorten the hem, sewed a rectangle of fabric under the bust, added shorts sleeves with bows and a Peter Pan collar. I didn’t have pattern for the collar so I traced mine.
I used a kind of suiting fabric in grey with golden stripes and blue poplin.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
