Vintage style maxi dress

Added Dec 28, 2008

Dunedin, New Zea...






Long dress based on a vintage pattern from 1974 (my boyfriend’s mum made it then!) from purple paisley and simplified a bit – no pockets and no gathering – I didn’t want it to be too maternity/babydoll.





Simplicity 7539 (1974)

My friend Beth for the fabric

    Gorgeous maxi – great use of an old pattern (very eco friendly). The dress looks extremely well made and stunning on you and the colour is perfect, I am so jealous!!!!:0) The background looks very beautiful to!!! Well done.
