retro 60s shift

January 30, 2014

Hi retro sewers,

Inspired by Gerties many versions, I thought I’d give this retro shift a try.

 

It took a while to get hold of the pattern (Simplicity 1609), I think it must be very popular and Addicted to Fabric ordered it in for me.

It made up easily and because the material had some spandex I didn’t need a zip. I even used bias binding rather than facings.

It’s a very practical summer dress. I even made another, in blue and white.

 

More details of both on my blog Barbarajanemade.

Thanks for reading and happy sewing.
