Vintage Sewing

Pretty in pink

July 2, 2009

The next dress I made was Simplicity 8467.

It’s a cute sun dress from the 1970’s with front gathers and a sweetheart neckline. I used a pink cotton seersucker fabric from my stash

I made a lot of changes for a better fit. I shortened the bodice, made more gathers and shortened the straps significantly.

I’m pretty satisfied with the result, but there are still a few wrinkles under my bust. It seems that the bodice is still to long, but I’m not sure.
Do you have any suggestions how do I get rid of these wrinkles?
