60s patterns

I have a strange feeling of deja vu, writing this post. Wasn't it about a year ago that I posted about an early 60s style dress I had made? Here I am again, writing another post on the same/similar topic.

As I've said before I have a simple sixties-style dress pattern I've used several times. Guess what, I did it again. Marimekko had a fabric sale in their online shop and I fell into that trap... This particular company runs reprints of their iconic sixties fabrics and I bought the 'Puketti' fabric in blue. While I was in the throes of a sewing seizure anyway I decided to redo another Marimekko dress I had made a couple of years ago. I shortened the hem a little and also the bodice which I had originally cut a bit too long.

So, a couple of nice dresses ready for the summer :)

Fabric: Marimekko 'Puketti', Annika Rimala 1964
Fabric: Marimekko 'Tantsu', Maija Isola, 1960
