Simplicity 3774 sun dress

December 22, 2013

This is my first posting on We Sew Retro. I have been looking at all of the cool repros for a while and decided to finally post one of my dresses that I made. I only sew with vintage patterns unless I am sewing for other people. I typically sew mod era fashions, but decided to go with an early ’60s pattern because that is when my grandma was a teenager. I know that a sundress is really out of season, especially with the Christmas tree in the background, but I decided to start on a few pieces for spring. I purchased the fabric from Hancock Fabrics on Black Friday. The dress was too loose in the back, so I had to add darts. I also made the Noel mailbag and the stockings in the back of the picture from a ’50s Mccalls pattern.

  1. Hi Vintager,
    Your sundress looks great. Please don’t be shy about posting bigger or more pictures! I’d love to see a close-up of your dress fabric and the lovely stockings you made.
    Cheers, Sarah
