Hi All! So FINALLY I get to blog about this dress. I have been nagging and nagging Middle Child about taking pictures of the TWO dresses I have made her that still remain unblogged. Well, now I know the trick. We bought Marvel Comic Super Hero fabric for a dress and I informed her that I would not make it until the other two dresses had pictures.๐Ÿ™‚ Success. So the way to get pictures is to promise more dresses! And I am surprisingly OKAY with that!

Simplicity 6882 Vintage 70's

I picked up this vintage pattern a while back. Holly is such a slim girl I wanted to try some 70’s styles on her. Simplicity 6882 seemed like a great place to start! I found a pretty royal blue rayon and went to work. The pattern is a size 10 and I had to take in the bodice quite a bit. Ah well. I am getting used to that with this girl! 5’4″ and doesn’t even hit 100 pounds. Despite all that she is a pretty cool cat.๐Ÿ˜‰ She has already worn this dress a few times.๐Ÿ™‚

Simplicity 6882 Vintage Pattern

The pattern went together pretty easily. I don’t typically like dresses with seams in the front of the skirt so if I make this again I may make some adjustments but thankfully the seam is barely noticeable. The zipper in the back went in without any trouble. Cool beans!

I shortened the length considerably. Holly looks great in a shorter dress so we usually make them a few inches above her knee. I had some trouble because the skirt was rounded. I kept getting those little ripples and ended up having to give it a really good press. Guess I need to do some tutorial reading on hemming rounded hemlines!

The bodice has some simple “pleating” in the front. Adds a neat little touch I think! Simplicity 6882 Vintage

Don’t you love Holly’s new short hair??๐Ÿ™‚

Somplicity 6882 Vintage

Yes. I am really liking this dress. And Holly does too! She has worn it several times! I am thinking I may need to make one in a pretty floral next.

Picture heavy and word light! I just don’t have a lot to say about this dress other than I love it! So I’ll catch you on the flip side!
