Verbage: I’ve wanted to make up the sweet little view C top in Vogue’s 2947 pattern package, ever since I bought the fabric. I had extra yardage so I made it long, but not long enough to be a “Maxi Dress”.
It clearly needed a slip although the Vogue photo doesn’t really show that, does it? Once again I’m impressed with the studio lightening and photographer’s skills to bring out the best in a pattern cover. Noooo, no way am I jealous! hahahahahaha, with all those lumps and bumps of mine, no I don’t need a professional…..
I pulled the discontinued KwikSew nightgown pattern and made the slip in white silk weight power dry. Per the pattern’s instruction suggestions I used the blind hem stitch to scallop the edges.
Love the Kwik Sew pattern! The power dry worked perfectly with this pattern, too.
So the white slip turned into a project to make the view with the diamond insert and decorate it with iron on bling. I made 2 exactly alike and sent one off to my tinier and taller sister.
We always loved the full sweep of an elegant 60’s nightgown with a well fitted bust when we were young girls.
I ordered the Kwik Sew pattern through their Archived Patterns service so if you find an old pattern you simply MUST have these archived patterns are $25.00 plus shipping and the service is great.
