I’m bringing out the pastel colors here for my Easter outfit! My pattern was a vintage Simplicity #4793 from year 1954. My fabric is a poly shantung and a rayon/acrylic boucle. My dress has extended pocket flaps, a fold-over front collar, kimono bias sleeves, and a wiggle skirt with a back vent. My jacket was made reversible in two different fabrics (since I couldn’t decide) with pockets looking like postage envelopes on both inside and out.
