I’ve had this pattern for years, and always liked its mix of 1960′s modern A-line shapes mixed with a more old-fashioned tailoring and elegance:
I made view 2 with the longer length sleeve from view 1 in a basic poly-cotton twill.
The bow at the front is black satin, and I added a self drafted collar in black satin to match:
The dress went together so easily – I didn’t have to make any adjustments to the size, and the A-line style is so comfortable and easy to wear.
I’ll post more details soon at my blog, nicoleneedles.blogspot.com
