Simplicity 8228 Version 1 (1969)

Dress made for Pattern Review contest.
I made this dress for 1969 theme party, as well as entering into the Pattern Review Contest. Theme was LWD. I didn’t end up wearing it, (WHITE is not my colour)! I do however like how the dress has turned out! Will find a time and place to wear it…somewhere..
I made the tabs as to instructions but didn’t like how they looked, created larger ones and fixed to waist and added buttons.

Material Notes

1 /1/2 mtrs crocheted fabric
1 1/2 cotton lining
55cm Zipper
Vintage buttons

    This is a beautiful dress ronnie-lee. I always think white looks great on tanned skin? And i plan on making myself one this year. I think this dress would look great on your figure. I would love fabric like this in my stash x

      My tan is quickly fading, by the time I end up wearing the dress i’ll be as white as it! Here’s a link for where I bought fabric. Normally $40 a mtr but everything half price at moment. xx
