As a child in the 60’s, I can picture myself wearing this to school or to Grandma’s for Sunday dinner. This pattern was easy to make with good, clear instructions, and yet still has enough details to give it a professional polish, as well as lots of ideas for changing it up for different looks. The dress was a perfect fit on my Glitter Girl doll.
