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!
