Sewing from vintage 60s patterns

I knocked together a quick dress one afternoon the other week. It's been hanging around til I could find my pack of hooks and eyes to sew in to fasten it. Apologies for the clutter in the background.

The pattern is a little big for me, but I couldn't be bothered to adjust it, so I made a loose smock-like dress. I was vaguely going for a Swedish folky look.

I've made the top from the packet as well, I bothered to adjust that, and I added a bib front, but I need to get some more decorative ribbon for trim before it's finished.

I should probably have noted that I absolutely do not intend to wear it with that stripy jumper, I just couldn't find a suitable clean top to change into.

You could totally pull it off with that stripey jumper. That's the kind of outfit that would make me smile if I saw it out in the world among all the suits, sweater sets and sensible shoes.

I was thinking black 3/4 sleeve top with thick black wooly tights and winter boots with that dress. I'll have to wait til autumn tho.
