Retro Summer Dress

I had some spare time over the past two days, so I decided to make a dress from a vintage pattern I have, Simplicity 3769. I used some lovely hawaiian - palm tree print poplin and made the sash of a plain drill. I wanted a light, simple summer dress, and also to see if the pattern worked to use for a more expensive project later in the year. This is how it turned out!


The pattern - Mine was a size 14, Bust 34.





I'm really pleased with it! :) And check out my funky retro hairstyle. Pretty nifty for something i did in ten minutes! ;D

Saw you on Sew Retro. The dress turned out awesome - I can't believe it's your first project. The bow just seals the deal!

Hello fellow Perth blogger. Amazing dress. Loooove the fabric. I just love 1950s style dresses... but unfortunately they don't like me very much :(
