Before and After Hit Parade - From Old to "New" Vintage 60s A-line Shift

The Seamstress: Elisabeth
The Pattern: 1964 Butterick 3079 Vintage Sewing Pattern Misses' Shift Dresses

The Result: This pattern for summer shift dresses caters to border print fabrics, displaying them to great effect. Inspired by this, Elisabeth turned this sewing project into a re-purposing project as well by using a vintage sheet as her fabric. The resulting delightful dress captures the colors of the 60s perfectly and also creates a charming summer dress with sunny, casual style!

Elisabeth's comments:
"For this dress I used a vintage pattern from the 60s. The fabric is an old bedsheet I got at ebay. The sewing was easy except the zipper. I somehow had a little trouble with it. Overall I really like this dress. I wore it already two times and think this could be a great everyday dress."
