Diagonal Dress Pattern
This one caught my eye -- Simplicity 7075 from 1967. I've never done any color blocking or anything like this, so I thought I'd give it a try. I normally don't buy vintage patterns anymore since I have plenty but this one was for 99 cents and less than $2.00 shipping so I bought it.
