Word of the Day!

I love this dress. The long version, with the fish tail skirt. I would keep it, except it isn't my size, or even within an inch of it. And honestly, there aren't many occasions (make that, NO occasions) in my life that would call for such a dress. Goat herders don't get invited to that many fancy soirées.
I can't say I think the sash would hang as beautifully as it does in this illustration. Sometimes pattern illustrations are a lot more fantasy than reality. Of course, on the back, it says the sash is boned. So maybe that partially explains it. If I were making it, I'd make the long version, but without the sash.
Pattern is dated 1960.
