 Lucky you! I have the pattern sitting right here. The pattern is from 1984. It just turned 20, it's truly vintage, awwww.

Very cute!!  A little hint I picked up about gathers...invest in some clear elastic.  You'll want to stretch it out a few times first, but after that, it should always bounce back to its original length.  Cut a piece long enough for what you want you FINISHED gathered piece to be (ie. cut it to the length of the bottom of your bodice).  Pin the elastic to either end of the piece to be gathered (which would be the skirt, in this case), and stretch it.  I usually will add a few more pins just to make sure the gathers are even.  Zig zag the elastic to the fabric while stretching the elastic.  When you're done, you should have an evenly gathered piece that'll fit perfectly to the piece you want to match it up to.  I have a ruffler foot too, but when I made my petticoat, the clear elastic was my best friend.

 Mmmhmmm, I'll keep that in mind. I didn't have any trouble once I figured it out, but easier is always better.

Interesting. Well, I swear it's 6408, and here's the picture to prove it!




Well, the pictures are kind of small, but hopefully you can see them.

Why thank you. There were several other styles of dress, but this one had the best back. The others were dumb.
I think the other backs look alright. But the back you chose definitely looks best w/ that floral fabric. Plus it's not as "80ish" as the others.  I think I have that same sheet. I am in the process of tearing it up for quilt squares. Where is our sheet respect? Huh

That's so pretty, the back reminds me of my sister's prom dress. The fabric looks nice with it too. It really does make a person think of running in a field of daises. Very cute
