Simplicity 6769- 70s dress in brown

Here is my pattern, which was about 15 cents. I used that brown polyester from a recent estate sale ($1). This was really easy to make and didn't even need a zipper, so I whipped it together in just one day last week!
 Please pardon these horrible pictures. It was so gloomy yesterday and the only light was in the dining room. Um, they would probably be better if you couldn't see the garbage can and the stuff on the back porch. Meh.
 Oh matchy-matchy with my coat and elvin green tights!
 It's pretty warm and I've been wearing it quite a bit lately.
 This was another "teen" pattern. My Molly's Ews: the thick polyester did not gather evenly at the bust and the hem is really wrinkly/wavy. It is not the type of fabric to hand sew, so I'm just going to leave it like that.
There is just a tie for the back and no darts, so I left out the back zipper. I can easily pull it over my head.

More projects soon, I have Wed and Thurs off! Yay!

On a random note, is anyone else OBSESSED with The Walking Dead? It is sooo great, Andrew and I are really into it. Sunday's episode was awesome! I love the zombies, but now it's on a break until Feb...


  1. Love the dress! It's perfect for winter and looks great with tights. As for the Walking Dead, OMG. OMG. That is all.

  2. Super cute dress! 70s styles really suit you.

  3. It's cute, looks like a pattern that would work well in lots of different types of fabrics too.

  4. Such a cute little dress, looks great on! And yes, me and my boyfriend are obsessed with The Walking Dead! We naughtily download it so we're level with you guys in the US and that last episode was awesome. Other addictive and equally (if not more) awesome US dramas include Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy and Boardwalk Empire. Clearly we watch too much TV - lol!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
