vintage sewing contest

I finished the first item in the Vintage Sewing contest at Pattern Review.

This is a late 1950s/early 1960s (it's hard to date since this style didn't change much) dress by Simplicity. It's a pretty basic style. I really like the way this pattern went together. I didn't have the instructions, so I used the ones for another similar (Butterick) pattern.

Greta is 7, yet she fits just fine into a size 4. I lengthened the hem by 2 inches. I like the higher waist on this (so different than her usual pants around her hips look.)
