This is a two piece dress (halter and skirt) which I made this summer using Simplicity 1365, a modern repro of Simplicity 6357.

I made the skirt a simple Dirndl using what was left of the yardage and a one inch waistband. The waistband closes with a skirt hook and snaps only, and I must say it is more comfortable without a zipper.

This is a really nice pattern to work with and the finished product looks very clean and tidy inside as well as out. More photos of the dress as well as a pic of my latest and possibly best ever sewing bargain are at my blog, Farmhouse Garden.

      1. I really loved this halter top when I made it back in college. It was super cute then and is still today, but not to worn by old ladies today.

  1. Looks so cute as a dress! I am just getting ready to make the same version but with the peplum. Using blue “bandana” cotton, debating making the tie strap white and adding white piping along the top. Will see when I have some things cut out. Debbie
