I've had this dress in my head for a while.  It's a variation on my 1966 McCall's 8269 that I've used twice before.  And I adore this fabric.





I separated the yoke from the sleeves, and made the sleeves one piece with a little bit of gather and a cuff at the bottom.  (The sleeves didn't turn out as puffy as I'd wanted, but I'm fine with that.)  I was going to split the yoke in front, but the fabric didn't have enough body to make it look good.  So I had to sew it closed, which resulted in that smidgen of a V-neck.  The back is the same as the front, except for the center seam.



I added a fitted, A-line skirt from just under the bust.  I like it.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

I like it too! Looks great. I especially like the neckline on the back, the pleats/ gathers look perfect!
