I decided to start these after getting a load of vintage fabric and patterns. Zooey's dress is made from fabric that says 1970 on the edge and the pattern was one that Mike's mother gave me that she made for him when he was little (the overall version though). The dress took an hour to assemble and about 30 minutes to cut out. Not too long at all. The chest of the dress is a bit big - but I think she will grow into it.
Mine is 100% polyester. For a hot night this night be a mistake. I haven't decided if I was to wear a belt and petty coat with it yet or not. It might be a bit too moomoo for me right now.
