Batik Chic & Simplicity 9354

Maxi dress made from vintage Simplicity pattern 9354 and some modern cotton batik thrifted for $4.00 at the Salvation Army, Clark’s retro style wedges, vintage crochet shawl, tribal fusion necklace made by me, Moroccan belt and “Ozzie” sunglasses.

Really enjoyed chatting with everyone in my first post! I’m back with more 70s sewing projects.

Some members commented on their fondness for a classic 70s pattern that was in my last post; Simplicity 9354. I previously created two versions of the dress done up in different, modern fabrics and in different lengths. The maxi was made for a cotton batik and the midi from some leftover, cotton, Halloween fabric with stars on it.

Wishing you all sharp scissors and balanced tensions!
