It is from this pattern a 1960 Vogue pattern I recently purchased off ebay.
My friend Caity gave me some fabric from her stash (this was purchased in the eighties) and it seemed to all come together to make this dress. I love the fit of this dress it has french darts in the front and darts in the back as well as a centre front and center back seam. This is a piccie of the back of the dress...
I need to put some fake tan on my back to cover all that white skin.
I simplified the making of the dress by not using the facings but instead used purchased bias binding to finish the neckline and armholes. I also used an invisible zipper in the CB seam. I finsihed the hem with bias binding or would have lost too much length.
I really enjoyed making this dress and I really love the fit of it. I wore this to a Xmas BBQ recently and it was lovely to wear in our warm summer weather. I look forward to making another one in a more evening-type fabric as the dress is actually intended as evening wear.
