Vintage Maxi Dress

(I can't get her out of these ridiculous shoes)


My version of dress C from this 1970s Butterick pattern.

I remember owning a few of these floor-length everyday dresses as a child.  I adored them, polyester and all.  This one has beautiful details.

I love the bartender sleeves.


Pathetically, I started sewing this two autumns ago.  It was too big then so I set it aside.  Ahem.  Done now!

This just screams Gunne Sax and Prairie Revival, love, love, love. I wore dresses like this in 1978. They were my favourite. Great job.
