1950s-60s Summer Dress

September 18, 2012

Hello! I am Viola, one of the Brentwood Lane sisters (Viv Me and Vera). This is my first post on WE SEW RETRO so I hope you enjoy it.

This summer (it’s not over yet and still warm where I am!) I wanted to make and easy-to-wear summer dress and I think I accomplished that. Although I used modern fabric and a modern pattern, I still wanted a vintage look. Speaking of the fabric, I picked a Swiss Dot floral print. I must admit that I like it a whole lot better when it is all sewn up than a piece of yardage! As always with me, I snuck in a pocket.

Right-side pocket!
