Hello Fellow Sew Retro members and readers,

This is Sertyan here from Sertyan’s Sewing Corner, from Malaysia! I am a working mother of a 2 year old. Before I used to sew dolly dresses and since I had my little girl, I sewed dresses for her. Recently I have started sewing for myself. This is my 3rd made-for-me piece, a retro inspired shirt dress from the 70′s. This is my first time posting on Sew Retro!

The pattern is Simplicity 2403, a modern pattern but the notched collars do give a 70′s effect.

For more information on the pattern, the fabric, the dress construction and also a tip on ‘beware of the pattern’, do visit my blog post on the dress.

Thanks for reading and I love it if you can give me your comments on the dress! Cheers!

Based on the pics you provided I do see where you say it has a 70s vibe, it looks awfully complicated in the sewing details and it came out very nice. Good job. It is cute on you.
