This UFO (unfinished object) has been sitting in the UFO pile since last winter. I didn’t really like the fit, but wasn’t willing to toss it. I discovered it last week while going through the pile. With fresh eyes, all it really needed was to be taken in a touch. It’s a lovely thick, warm flannel version of Simplicity 1577. I lengthened the sleeves, but I think they could be longer. This dress is a perfect example of classic 50’s style without a crinoline. While the big puffy skirt is what we typically think of, I’m coming to understand that it was not worn for everyday wear.
