I modified this one a little, with this 60’s dress in mind.
I raised the neckline by 1 1/2″ to a boatneck, lengthened the skirt, and moved the gathers to the side. I probably could have widened the shoulders a bit too, and made the back a V-neck, to match the dress a bit better. Next time!
The fabric is viscose jersey, and I lined it with an off-white bamboo jersey that I bought with the intention of using for a collar. I decided that the collar would be too much, and decided that I would make the sleeveless, lined version instead (version 1).
I’m reasonably happy with the fit, although the armholes are a little big and the bodice is still a little long (I shortened it 1 1/4″ for this version). I hemmed it with a stretch blind hem, rather than the recommended twin needle, and I think that it turned out quite well!
Overall, though, I’m really happy with it! I’ve worn it lots as a casual day dress, and I also wore it to my high school graduation ceremony, under the ridiculous gown that you have to wear. For more details and photos, see my blog post, and for even more photos, see my flickr. Thanks for reading!
