Description

Simplicity 7385, 1976 (http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Simplicity_7385)
This was my backlash to Self-Sewn-September, the making of a dress that I could hopefully use more often.
Halfway through, I realized that it looked exactly like all of my grandmother’s summer muumuu’s (my family has a running joke that I am becoming her!), so I spiced it up with a fake-wrap Soviet-style front, cuffed the sleeves and opted for the tie belt.
The best part was the fabric cost only about $5 and all my other materials were pulled from my stash!
