Vintage Patterns – 1960s

I love a good vintage pattern, and have started a collection via ebay purchases of 1950s, 1960s and 1970s sewing patterns.  I find it very amusing that some of them were only 60c back then!

This pattern is Simplicity 5953 – dated 1965.  It is a lovely shift style dress, with diagonal darts from the bust down beyond the waistline.  I found some 60s looking fabric in Spotlight, and put the two together.

Simplicity 1965

The dress is really comfortable for summer, and nicely appropriate for work, with higher neckline.  I wear the dress with a slim belt, to draw it in further at the waist.

  1. Nice retro look. I like it. I try to collect as many old patterns as I can too. Sometimes old patterns are the best and you can always update.
