Vogue Patterns

 

Step in shirt dress with or without top-stitch trim has bias collar and full length shirt sleeves; pockets in side seams

Last year I purchased this sweet shirt dress pattern from eBay. It’s a lovely dress from 1967 and has all those things you’d expect from a late 60s dress like Bishop Sleeves and the wide tent shape

The thing I like most about this is how the wide A shape of the dress is accented by the delicate shoulders and collar. Although this style is typically for Children, in the 60s this style of dress was very common, as it was on purposely designed to replicate the clothing of the wearer’s childhoods, therefore perpetuating the Youth ideal of the era.
