Simplicity 7655-House Dress Pattern 1968
I finished this Simplicity pattern today, which happened to be printed the year my husband was born-hee hee. I was going to finish weeding the garden, but we had a lot of rain last night. So it gave me a little time to sew. This was a pretty quick pattern, even for me. It was the first time I had ever done a collar. Not so bad, but room for improvement. My 20" zipper went in pretty well. Maybe they get easier the more you do them. I still really don't like putting in zippers. I just serged the edges of the pockets and zigzag stitched them on. This isn't high fashion, it is for practical use. I wanted something to put on in the morning when I walk out to check the garden and the fruit, etc. I didn't want to be in pajamas even though we live out in the country. Sometimes you do see a car go by and I am sure they don't want to see me in my jammies. My son wanted to know why I was making myself a hospital gown???? I showed it to him finished and he still hates it. Oh well, he doesn't have to wear it! I think I will enjoy it. It is made of lightweight salmon pink cotton with tiny white polka dots. A nice breeezy house dress for the summer!
