a simple pattern with some nice change

in 1960s,Vintage Sewing

I try once this Mc Call’s patterns but doesn’t like me completely.
So, when I found this wool fabric I think to make a dress using this patterns,but changing the sleeve, the neck and make a little thight in the waist part.
and with some bow looks nice, don’t you?

This is really cute! I’m wary of vintage looks because I already look fairly young and I’m afraid I’d look like I’m playing dress up, but you make me really want to try it out!
