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.
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.
