Simplicity 4475 is a raglan-sleeved “Simple to Make” dress from the 60s and WOW is it simple to make!! I had never made a dress with raglan sleeves before making this dress for the Bernina Vintage Dress-Along I hosted on the WeAllSew blog, but I may never set in a sleeve again–the dress went together so quickly and easily.

My only modification was to lower the bust darts by 1/2″. This is a size 12 (bust 32) and it’s a bit on the loose side (for me) but that just makes it even nicer to wear in this crazy heat we’ve been having in North Carolina (and everywhere else, it seems!).

More details can be found on my blog here.

xoxo,
allie J.
