Mini Dress Made of Vintage Fabric (Simplicity 6783 from 1966)

March 22, 2011

Okay, a quick break from the skirt projects to present a mini dress I made using vintage fabric. I used Simplicity 6783 from 1966, which I’ve used before. I made view 3, but I made it into a mini-length instead of the regular length shown on the pattern envelope.

This fabric was listed on Etsy as a vintage polyester blend. I was expecting it to be similar to a polyester double-knit, but it was more like a sweater material once I got it in person. I didn’t know that polyester could feel like sweater material, so I wasn’t sure what to make of it.

You can read more about my adventures (or rather misadventures) with this project on my blog Sew Sixties.

Happy Sewing!
