Saturday Special: Advance 6653
I love the double row of buttons down the front of this circa 1954 dress, as well as those big pockets and neat little collar – it’s a classic line without being fussy or over-stated.
This pattern features the endorsement of sewing educator Edna Bryte Bishop, who worked with the Advance sewing pattern company from 1953. She sounds like a fascinating lady with extraordinary skills and a penchant for fabulous horn-rimmed specs – you can read all about her and the fundamental principles of the grain line on the Authentic Bishop Sewing Method website.
