Simplicity 5096 – 1960’s A-line Dress

April 7, 2013

I’ve had this pattern for years, and always liked its mix of 1960’s modern A-line shapes mixed with a more old-fashioned tailoring and elegance:

I made view 2 with the longer length sleeve from view 1 in a basic poly-cotton twill.


The bow at the front is black satin, and I added a self drafted collar in black satin to match:

The dress went together so easily – I didn’t have to make any adjustments to the size, and the A-line style is so comfortable and easy to wear.

Cold, windswept London - can you believe this is meant to be Spring?

I’ll post more details soon at my blog, nicoleneedles.blogspot.com
