Sewing from vintage 60s patterns

I was watching The Boat That Rocked the other day, and rather fell in love with this dress that one of the characters briefly wears. It seems pretty simple, but I was wondering if any of you had seen a similar pattern, or knew how I might go about tracking one down.





(I know it's difficult to see, but it does have a collar.)


Thanks! I hope this is allowed, but if it's not, mods, feel free to delete.

A note from your beloved leader

It's fine! It's nice to see the community in use again.

It looks like a button through shirt dress with a flared skirt, am I right?

I've got two similar patterns I haven't got round to making yet, Simplicity 6795 and Style 4971

Googling the simplicity pattern gives me an american pattern for a hideous caftan, I guess the UK and US patterns nos are different

Oooh, that's quite similar, and quite close to my size. Thanks!
