oh i love the 60’s. they had the best dresses and hair do’s. i got this pattern from ebay for a shift dress. it has this lovely detail down either side of the waist that complements the figure. i chose fleece for the material – stange i know but this dress is lovely and warm. and since its crazy mid season weather, you need to be prepared…

    This is very cool.. I wish I would have had this pattern before Halloween! I wanted to make a Jane Jetson style dress.. I was going to a music festival for Halloween and wanted to be a Space Disco Vampire.. and bought red shiny fabric.. and this pattern would have been perfect! I tried to look up the patter on google. and had a hard time finding anything.. any ideas?

    Awesome! It’s amazing how a fabric choice can completely change the style and era of a dress. I agree with many of the above posters – inspired!
