I found the pattern in this book - a book which is about to become one of my all time favourites! The fact that the book was made 3 decades ago, gives the various models a very special look and touch of details.
I'm actually rather happy about the way the dress turned out. I think the fabric and the dress go so well together, maybe because both things are designed and written at the same period of time - in the 60ties and the 70ties.
I enjoyed making the mandarin collar and adding the covered button from Små Tekstiler. To close the button I sewed a loop in the same lime green colour as inside the Marimekko flower.
I also tried out some jetted pockets and that I haven't done for a long time. I believe the last time I made them, was when I sewed my own clothes - for parties - in highschool.
(And I'm still crazy about Picnik!)
