This is my fourth dress from this pattern. One of my favorites. It’s a late 60’s Simplicity (8189). Not only is it easy, but a great base to add simple embellishments to. Perfect for the summer. I added a low belt to this version.
I had intended to add sleeves originally. Since I was using some vintage polyester blend fabric, decided I’d better go sleeveless instead. If you’ve ever worn a polyester garment, you know what I mean. Such a shame because there is some great vintage polyester textiles out there.
Vintage Polyester (possible blend, can’t be sure)
