A Vintage Classic

in 1960s,Vintage Sewing

For this dress I used vintage pattern Simplicity 4432.  From what I could glean on the internet (and correct me if I am wrong) this pattern is from the early 60′s.

I used 100% cotton of course! It was a piece of fabric I fell in love with on a recent trip to Oregon. It was on the clearance table and another 50% off so I paid a total of $9 for the whole piece! As soon as I saw it I KNEW it was going to be this dress and it was going to be for Holly.

The inside is fully lined with a white cotton. It actually started out as a light weight car cover my grandma gave to my mom, and my mom was going to get rid of. It was so soft I said NO! I can use that cotton fabric for lining! And I did!

Super simple dress and oh so sweet! We got compliments at the Classic Car show we attended to take pictures. We wanted to be in a setting that fit the dress!
