I always get vintage patterns when I find a good one at the thrift store, thinking someday I will make something out of them. I never do. However, last night I cleaned out my fabric closet and found a pattern I wanted to try. It's from 1976, I believe, since the lady who had it before me cut out the pattern from newspaper dated May 10, 1976.
I modified the dress pattern and used the front bodice piece as the back, too, instead of the two pieces they had cut out. I couldn't figure out how to sew them together and as it turns out, it didn't matter at all. I lined the toile-ish fabric with purple gingham and man, it turned out so cute! The skirt part is huge and circular, perfect for a little girl that likes to twirl around!
