This is my first post, so I’ll take a minute to introduce myself. I’m Allie, I’m a library science student and former archaeologist, and my decades of choice are the 1950s and 60s. I blog over at missalliemass.blogspot.com.
My current project is perfecting a few go-to patterns: a fitted shift, a fit-and-flare dress, and a loose shift, which you can see the second incarnation of today!
It is a modern pattern (New Look 6145 in its most basic version) inspired by a dress worn by Cynthia on Mad Men and pinned here. I really like my version (yellow’s not my color) but there are still some fitting issues I am working on, namely a swayback alteration and too much fabric in the front.

Thanks, and hello again!
