Flowers and polka dots dress

I made a dress with altered collar and placket pattern pieces from this vintage ’60s sewing pattern.

I used a recycled t-shirt for the bodice, and re-drafted the collar and placket pattern pieces. So, the neckline is wider and lower than the original pattern.

The result is a retro and comfy, summer dress.

If you would like to see more information about the process, and more pictures, please check out the entry on my blog. Thanks!
