For my latest project I used this early 1960s vintage pattern, Simplicity 3932, and modern fabric. Although this pattern is for a culotte dress, I just not fond of full-blown culottes so I amended the pattern to make a skirt with a front and back pleat.
The fabric is a lineny weave rayon with a vine and leaf design embroidered on it. I got the fabric last fall at Mary Jo’s Cloth Store in Gastonia, NC when my sister-in-law and I spent a full day there. Seriously. And we could have stayed longer!
