Growing up in the Sixties, shop bought clothes were expensive so most of my dresses were handmade by Grandma or the local dressmaker. My wardrobe was mainly variations on this Sixties Shift dress. I’ve made up a pattern to download with photo instructions at my Etsy store.
This butterfly print is upholstery fabric from Spotlight ( a big chain store here in Australia.)
