Miss 12 had a school project that required her to choose a well known person, dress up like that person and present a 2 minute speech and display board. She chose British designer Mary Quant. Her presentation went very well and she even received compliments about her dress.
I used this old Style pattern (more 1970s than 60s) that’s been languishing in my pattern stash for years to create a 1960s inspired mini dress. The dress required several alterations in the bust, waist, side seams, shoulders area to achieve a perfect fit. The fabric is a linen/cotton print. Miss 12 loves the dress so much that she’s wearing it with skinny leg jeans to a birthday party today. You can read all about our Mary Quant project adventure on my blog.
