Iced Cocktail for Silkstone Barbie

I love browsing through vintage patterns on Etsy. This week, I found a dress pattern from the early 1960’s that has an unusual off the shoulder draped sleeve that becomes a collar in the back. I decided to give it a go and see if I could figure out how to recreate it. After a couple attempts at the sleeve/collar, I finally got it figured out. I hope to publish the pattern soon. But in the meantime, the dress is now available in my Etsy shop.
