60's Sheath

Added Nov 29, 2008

Brooklyn, New Yo...






1960’s Shift Dress with purchased belt. The dress fit in the hips but came out too big in the waist. The pattern isn’t cut to be at all fitted. If I make it again, I’ll take in the waist by probably 2" or more.

Material Notes

2 1/2 yards Cotton,
Metal Jacket Zipper, &
Purchased Belt





Vintage Simplicity “Jiffy” Pattern 4429

    great dress! love the fabric and contrasting belt. I have the same problem with the waist on dresses.

    Nice dress! I made a shift dress once for a wedding – it didn’t come out that great- I had a similar problem with the fitting so I wore a waist band. I guess the 60’s shape was more box like!!
