Northern Nsw, Au...
This dress is my mum’s pattern – Simplicity 7484 – from the 1970s. I found some beautiful fabric from my favourite fabric store in Sydney and after much deliberation decided to sew it up using this pattern. It was pretty straight forward but the bustier top was quite hard to fit and tended to gape slightly – I was happy with the final results though!
