Simplicity 6220 (1965)

May 30, 2015

It’s wedding season! Guess who needs 5 million spring/summer cocktail dresses? (Hint: it’s me!)

I made Simplicity 6220 in this pale aqua silk thinking it would be good for spring/summer with bare legs and wearable in winter with white or black tights. Three-season dressing!

Here is a close up of the v-shaped princess seams. This was what drew me to the pattern.

I posted more about the construction of this dress here and more photos of me wearing it here!

Thanks for reading!


  1. This dress turned out so nice! I also love the seaming and the bow detail. The fabric choice is spot on. I think this pattern would also look good in a sleeveless version, out of a more casual fabric. Very pretty!
