Simplicity 4650: 1954 dress pattern

December 3, 2010
I have finally created my first official vintage dress straight from the pattern!  The sad part is, it was incredibly easy to follow and put together, that I don’t know why I was so afraid.
I picked a deep purple color for this dress. I did pattern 3.
After having issues with my Peggy dress, I purchased a few patterns that were true to my size.  Simplicity 4650 seemed like a great starting point.  The fit looked nice, and I liked the square neckline.  I’m not quite ready to wear a collar like that but I may in a future version of this dress.
