I have a good basic pattern for my favourite dress and I've used it to make 3 other dresses already. This time I wanted a summery version, no sleeves and a zipper closure.
So, here's a popular style from the summer of '63 :)
|Awkward early 60s fashion pose.|
|I <3 The Beatles! This album wasn't released until November '63, but what the heck :)|
|I made the belt too, because I couldn't find anything from the shops. It's a length of wide black elastic band sewn onto a clasp.|
|The hem is very full, I put three widths of the fabric in it, mainly because I didn't want to have any weird fabric scraps left over. The hem circumference is ca. 3,5 metres... :)|
