The pumpkin dress!

October 27, 2011

Bit asked for a “pumpkin dress” followed by an “Aunt Laura will you make it for me?”  so I cast around and found a pumpkin print that wasn’t Halloween, and a pattern that I’d bought with the intention of using it to sew a petticoat to go under her Christmas dress.  It’s Simplicity 8429, from 1978!  Because it’s starting to get cold here, I did the long sleeved version.  And after it was done, I added bows in various places to provide a focal point on the very busy pattern!
