Here are some of the dresses I’ve made from 1960’s patterns and blogged about lately.

Simplicity 7120

Simplicity 6634 from 1966

Simplicity 7075 from 1967

All of them were very easy to make.  The only consistent change I made to the patterns was to lower the waist dart and bust dart tips by about half an inch to an inch  — those 60’s styles had some high dart points!

They’re all a bit different from my usual style since I hardly ever use prints, but I’m really enjoying all of them.  The slightly fitted skimming style has been very comfortable this hot summer.
