1 / 1975
I made this dress from Simplicity 6555 which dates from 1966. I used a vintage double knit polyester I purchased on eBay. I re-sized the pattern from a 38 inch bust a 34 inch bust. I also shortened the hem 3 inches. I hand picked a vintage metal zipper. I bias bound the sleeves, used seam tape to bind the waistline seam / stay the waist, and used lace hem tape on the hem. I am very happy with how it turned out. I am especially in love with the cut of the bodice and the interesting seaming.
