Pucci print dress!

Many of you know about my cutting mishap with this Pucci-inspired fabric. Even decades of experience do not make one immune to silly mistakes! But, thanks to Sherry Doty, who so generously offered me her piece, the dress is now finished! I used the same vintage pattern, Simplicity 6672, that I used for my graduation dress back in May.

The dress will be making it’s debut this evening at my father-in-law’s birthday birthday bash.

    Very pretty! I’m so glad for you that Sherry was able to help out with the extra fabric. Have fun at the party!

  2. I discovered your blog a few days ago and have enjoyed reading through some of your older posts. The dress is lovely–I really like the combination of the pattern and the fabric. I recently saw this same pattern on eBay, and wondered how it would look made up for “modern wear”. Now I know! :)

  3. Wow! I love this dress – the fabric, the pattern, everything!

  4. Beautiful dress! I love it!

  7. Gigi – I think this your own personal Energizer Bunny pattern…it just keeps going and going and going – each one is better than the last!

    This pattern came from my small hometown’s fabric shop! Who would have thunk it, Clyde’s Fabric Shop lives on on the internet!

  14. That is so funny, Laura! I bought it on Ebay. I love wondering about the history of my vintage patterns.
