1961 Simplicity Nostalgia 3830
Soon to be gone were the days when women wore cinched waistlines, white gloves, heels, and perfect hair and makeup. This style was carried over from the influence of Jacklyn Kennedy during the 1950's and lasted almost until the mid 60's when a new modern style broke this mold. Actual pattern pieces were used and planned to create this cubist,semi-abstract piece. The skirt pattern was large and as you can see, the red curves and areas of red are the top portions of those pattern pieces.
