I remember when this dress pattern first came out. I was completely taken with the design; it seemed so fresh and unlike any of the dress styles I was used to seeing. I made it up, but don’t remember wearing it very much. My sewing skills were somewhat limited in those early days and the dress probably didn’t turn out to look quite as nice as the picture on the pattern envelope.
Now that I have begun to sell off my old patterns, I find myself struggling with letting go of this one. Most patterns are very easy to part with once the decision has been made, while others, not so easy. I found myself thinking about making it up in a contemporary fabric. I know it would be cute even though I couldn’t possibly fit into it anymore!
