Simplicity 3744

July 5, 2007
Well, I finally finished my ’60-70’s style dress-Simplicity 3744. The photo shows the dress before I hemmed it and the wrinkles you see are from pinning the hem in place.

I really like the look of the dress. I had some issues with the pocket pattern that I talk about here and on my review at Pattern Review. This was made specifically for my summer wearing pleasure. I like the dress very much and now that all fitting issues have been noted and made I plan to make the view with the longer sleeves for fall.
The fabric was given to me by sewing/blogger friend Carolyn with Diary of a Sewing Fanatic. The fabric is a 1960-70 fabric and truly was a pleasure to sew and very appropriate for this dress.
  1. Oh that is so pretty. I have a major thing for green dresses atm (even though I am currently sewing a pink one!)
