This pattern is from the 1940’s and not the newer Simplicity 4258 that is a bridal gown. It was very easy to sew and since this was my first experience with a vintage pattern, I fell in love with the way the pattern is pre-cut with all the bells and whistles taken care of. It was a breeze to trace! I have other pictures on my blog and some of the problems I ran into (my own silliness rather than issues with the way the pattern was). I love my new dress! Now I just need a hat…..
