I used McCall’s 7407 (vintage, printed in 1981) as a springboard for this dress, although I changed the sleeves and a couple of other small things. It was fun to learn how to do lace trim on the bodice. I used vintage woven cotton for this dress. I wore this on New Year’s Eve to a dinner with my husband and friends!
vintage woven cotton, vintage lace and ribbon, elastic, 7" back zipper
