Fargo, North Dak...






This fully lined sleeveless dress lands just above the knee. It has a raised waistline and I adopted a square neckline. Couture sewing techniques were used, including a hand picked zipper.

Material Notes

stone blue wool, loose twill weave; polyester lining

    I noticed your handpicked zipper immediately. What a beautiful touch!

    The picture was a bit dark, although I tried to lighten it. However, I decided it is more of a grey-blue so I called it stone blue. The pattern is from 1974-its Simplicity 6559. You probably won’t be able to fine it in a store-I would check eBay.
