"Shift-ing" Back to 1967

Added Jun 12, 2014

Southern, Califo...






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.

    This is lovely on you, the inside is just as pretty as the outside. I love vintage patterns and this is a fab one. It’s funny but I was watching a I dream of genie film Last week and was admiring the way they styled Barbara Eden. I would’ve loved her wardrobe x
