The GDR Dress
This sewing- issue named PRAMO
is coming from the German Democratic Republic
I found in love with this dress and I must sew it!
Only too pieces :
one front and one back piece
but not so many instructions :-)
and not very distinctives pattern!!! :-(
But it wasn't too difficult to put the 2 pieces together :-)
I bought a heavy satin cotton fabric in an old rose color for a long time.
Perfect for this dress from the sixties.
I cut a front and back facing with the same fabric.
Neckline and armhole fit very good.
I used an unvisible zipper.
I made only one modification:
I must sew 2 darts at the back because it was too wide!
Ok, I have a hollow back that's why I must reduce the volume of the babric at the back.
The sixties necklines are often starting very high.
It looks very pretty but it's not so much confortable :-(
We are no longer accustomed with these necklines.
I 'm not yet tanned ...
but I'm on holiday next week :-)
but I already love it!!!
