View 1, Advance 8617, from 1958 – I made this dress first.  It has gussets in the sleeves and a more fitted bodice.  This blue cloth is a more retro look, but the yellow West African print was probably around in 1958.

I like to make things. This includes sewing, pattern drafting, quilting, working with cement, and I like building houses. When I sew, I generally like to make historically accurate vintage reproductions. This goes for construction methods and finished product.
