60s dress: Simplicity 4980

September 23, 2013

Just finished this rather fetching blue cotton day dress from vintage Simplicity pattern 4980 (late 50s/early 60s)

I was not defeated by the hidden collar, by the soft pleats or the side zip closing (all firsts for me!)

More about this on my blog, please do pop over and have a look, as usual any advice that would make my life easier would be greatly appreciated!

  1. What an era, huh? This just looks great. Congrats on getting all those difficult items out of the way, too. Undaunted courage = successful side zipper! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love your dress! I also love your hair. I want to get my hair cut like that – how do you find a hairdresser who can do that, what do you tell them or do you take in pictures?
