"Shift-ing" Back to 1967
Added Jun 12, 2014
Slightly a-line dress/shift with funnel collar. The distinctive feature of the dress is the side panels that bridge the front and back. The front and back (finished with facing in the same fabric) was basted and topstitched along the edges of the side panels. Although the dress appears simple in design, the basting, machine and hand-stitching (lower hem and inside of collar), and other steps took a lot of time.
