in 1960s,Dresses

Hello, how is everyone?  I’m working on 2 dresses right now. The first is from a late 1950s 1961/62 pattern (thank you Katherine for giving me the proper date)  by simplicity. I’ll post the second once I’ve fitted it on the dressform.


I'm making view 3 (purple dress) b/c I ran out of Buffalo and I couldn't find it at the fabric store!! Oh well, it's still awesome! I wasn't in the mode to add buttons to I got rid of that and the front is all one piece.


It's difficult to see the collar but it's there! LOVE these buffalos! Since I have adjusted the bodyform to my height I will be taking off more than a few inches off the bottom. It's just too long. My knees are not that low!

I hope everyone had an excellent weekend of sewing!

Simplicity 4003 is from 1961/2, I think. Love that you’re making it from buffalo print :)
