This has definitely been my go to pattern- My 1950's/60's Simplicity 4298
I've made a few dresses now with this pattern and I'm sure I'll be making more!
I added a bow to the center of the top of the bodice and some matching olive green vintage ric-rac that I found for .25 cents around the neckline to tie in the colors of the skirt. I feel it draws the eye more up now, and looks less plain.
I also made a bow to add to my hair out of the same fabric, because why not?
I bought the fabric at Joanns, I've been having a hard time with finding vintage fabrics around town that I would like to invest a lot of time and work in and I loved the colors of these two fabrics together! I hate having to buy new, but I know that sometimes you have to just break down and spend the extra money if its worth having. But by all means I use every single coupon and discount that I possibly can when buying new, fabric is ridiculously expensive and we can all use the savings.
Till next time...
