This reminds me of the 60's when us women used to be stay at home wives and make all those lovely homemade meals. LOL LOL. They would get dressed up for their dinner guest when they had a gathering at their homes.
I came across the fabric at "YES MARDENS" for 2.99 a yard and just had to have it. I knew exactly what I wanted to make and which pattern I would be using.
The added necklace lends just enough touch of class to dress up the dress even more.
I used butterick pattern number B5317 (fast & easy)
