Remember the loud frock made from 1970s curtains? Here’s another version. I made the collar taller and squarer for a more 50s shape and found a great yellow and grey polka dot voile for more era-appropriateness. But it’s still a 1970s pattern. I hope someone spots the 1970s shape of the sleeve caps and has conniptions.
My only regret is the underlining isn’t a bit heavier weight. I do feel particularly cunning for putting the buttons over the grey dots. Perfect match.
