Mod Dress in Ponte Knit

November 27, 2013

I decided to copy cat the 1969 vintage look on the envelope of Vogue pattern 7663.  The short sleeved dress is loose fitting with a dropped waist and front button banded placket, the skirt is one way pleated all around. 

I changed the pattern slightly to accommodate my much loved ponte knit fabric. I achieved this by removing the back neckline darts and stitching down the front button placket
