Simplicity 7341

by Tilly

in 1970s

Greetings, vintage fans! I made this dress from Simplicity 7341 from 1976, in a lovely Japanese double gauze. It was pretty simple to make and is the kind of thing I’d wear all the time, so I’m already planning a bunch more in different colours and fabric types. More details on my blog, Tilly and the Buttons. Au revoir!

I remember that pattern, very well. But I don't remember it turning out a cute as your version!

I think your fabric choice really made the difference.
