Vintage Dress Pattern: Lined Designer Dress with Optional Oversized Collar 1960s Butterick #3870, complete, all pieces included
Bust = 32" Waist = 25" Hip = 34"
Why I was drawn to this heritage pattern: I like the easy, luxe feel of Jane and Jane designs. Plus: woman designer Jean Muir! Check out her stuff in the collection of the V&A Museum: http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/j/jean-muir/
Jean Muir was a British designer who designed for celebrities, including Lauren Bacall. In 1964 she won the first of her three Dress Of The Year awards for a Jane & Jane dress and favored Liberty prints.
