||Simplicity 5707 is a vintage pattern from 1964. Fitted bodice with sweetheart neckline and pleats in the skirt. I used a bright pink silk dupioni, and matching rayon bemberg lining. A waist stay helps to support the skirt. I shortened the pattern to a more flattering length, above the knee. I catch-stitched the hem with rayon seam binding.
I love this dress, it is comfortable and flattering. I made it for a party, and got a lot of complements about it. People couldn't believe that I made it!
