1960s debute


This dress reminded me of a Mary Tyler Moore or a Jacke O dress. I’m nothing like either style icon so I acknowledge that it’s all in my head.

Trying to look like a 1960s pose

Anyway, this fabric is a $1 Cue remnant from Pitt Trading. The dress is Butterick 3833. The trim is leftover shirting fabric cut on the bias.

This dress was supposed to be a test but it was fitting well (with a few tweaks and comments from my sewing/fashion bloggers) so I decided to make it an official dress.

I sew because that's what I love to do. I'll try sewing anything.
