Retro Restyle: Striped Dress

July Retro Dress OLD BURDA Original style and cover from burda moden 6/1961
How is the perfect holiday dress put together? In this case we would say it would have a breezy cut that isn’t too snug, though one that can be drawn toward the figure with a belt...one that lays in mini pleats tucked into a neckline band that also is constructed to be the dress straps. Of course, one that is sewn with a fabric that is wrinkle-resistant in a cool stripe design – that can survive in the travel case without trouble because I think we can all agree that a holiday should not include a lot of ironing duties.
July Retro Dress PATTERN
Perhaps most importantly, we want our holiday dress to easily be comfortable enough for cocktails, for dinner and for time to sit on the shoreline. "This dress" is also easy to style and accessorize: a pair of flat sandals and a bag for shopping in the city; alone as a cover-up at the beach; and evenings with sexy sandals and striking jewelry to shine. Time to start! The holidays will be here before you know it... See even more ways to style this pattern below:

Perhaps it's a cool summer night, but you still want that fashion style - try pairing with a fun matching cardigan "like this ruffled one" and a sultry pair of strappy heels to complete the look.
