The Debacle Dress – Simplicity 3608

Now why did I call this The Debacle Dress?? The full story is HERE at Kitty’s Drawings :-D  A whole SERIES of dramas came with the creation of it.

BTW – this is Simplicity 3608 from 1951, made in white cotton drill. It was really great to sew up actually, due to the nature of the fabric and it was also quite a simple pattern. The variations are really great too – It came with an intact transfer pattern for the neckline and pocket. It’s actually not meant to be embroidered – the instructions tell you to attach three threads of yarn/wool with double overcast stitches spaced 1/4 inch apart. How cool! I’d love to make this in a navy wool or linen and white yarn.
