This dress shouldn’t have worked. The pattern has many elements that don’t normally work for my shape. The raglan sleeves, high neckline, slim skirt all have failed me in the past. For some reason, this one worked out very nicely. Because I need stretchy but professional garments to wear to work, I decided to use an ITY jersey that has been in my stash for a few years. The only change I made was to use a narrow band to finish the neckline, instead of a facing. Oh, and of course, I raised the skirt 3 inches and it’s still not to the knee. I absolutely love this dress. I need to make a few more NOW!
As for the pattern, I don’t have much information. My first guess is late 60s, but this also reminds me of something my mother would wear in the 70s. It’s hard to tell without things like hairstyle or shoes to give clues.
