Inspired by Mary Tyler Moore on her 70s show – she had such great style, and lately I’m feeling very inspired by the 1970s. The base is Vogue 1219, a vintage Christian Dior pattern from 1975. I made the bodice a little more fitted than the pattern called for – it was pretty tent-like on my as designed. I like the shape – I think it’s classic and retro without making me feel like an air stewardess (a-lines sometimes make me feel that way!) No pockets, but I did make for myself a pretty neck kerchief out of zebra print charmeuse. I’m so pleased to have completed a vintage pattern, as all previous attempts have been sort of disastrous. Now I just have to tackle some of the more vintage patterns in my possession! More details are on my blog: Green Apples
Icky polyester suiting from Joanns… awful stuff to work with, but it looks nice!
