Simplicity 9969

I offer you another finished frock – a “costume” pattern reproduction of the dress style worn by WWII torch singers.

It was an easy pattern to put together, with only a small adjustment to the waist, and gives a very flattering silhouette.  The fabric is some type of medium weight (vintage – not sure how vintage) cotton, which did not become terribly wrinkled when worn for the whole day – YAY!

The photo doesn’t really do justice to the details in the garment, such as the frills on the right hip, and bias cut front drape.  The skirt is slightly a-line, and the bodice features kimono sleeves and sweetheart neckline.

I am so happy with how it turned out, and will be making another with longer sleeves, just in time for our winter.
