Most of my vintage style makes are inspired by or actually from the 1950’s. One of my goals with the Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge (both last year and this time) is to broaden my horizons and try out new-to-me eras and shapes in fashion history.
Two weeks ago, I realized the loose shapes and high hemlines of the late 1960’s might be perfect in warm summer weather. After a quick search through my vintage magazine collection, I came up with a few contenders but in the end, I went with this one. The dress on the left.
All in all, I think it’s a pretty cool dress, both literally and figuratively.
