Simplicity 4930

January 28, 2012

Hello! I just wanted to share one of my most recent projects, Simplicity 4930 from the early 60’s. I purchased this pattern at an estate sale quite some time ago and just fell in love with the open back scoop.

I ended up using this fabric that I came across at a thrift store about 6 months ago. Does anyone know if this print/motif has a name?

This was a fairly easy dress to make. I did end up shortening the bodice and taking it in a bit through the darts. I’m going to be using this pattern a lot for my summer wardrobe!

I love the versatility of this dress! I styled it the other night with a green cardigan, brown waist belt, brown wool tights, and brown oxfords.
