Saturday Special: Simplicity 9254
I love the Mandarin-style collar on this 1971 dress, as well as its inverted front pleat – I can see it in a textured raw silk. Very elegant!
Misses’ dress and belt: The dress with back zipper has inverted pleat at lower end of center front seam, front inside tucks, shaped neckline and stand-up collar. V1 with short set-in sleeves and optional button trim may be worn with a contrasting, top-stitched, button trimmed belt. Sleeveless V2 has braid-trimmed self-fabric belt.
