Vintage Pattern

I planned to get this dress finished for Christmas, but unfortunately didn't have the time. Today I finally hemmed it. Only two weeks late. Its a sixties pattern, it has princess seams, which I love.

I made view H, but with sleeves.

The dress had a really low v-neck which was gaping after I had finished it. So I made an alteration in the shoulder seams, and now the neck sits flat.

The fabric is fabulous Liberty of London, and it cost me next to nothing. I hope to wear this when weather improves.
