Patterns From The Past: Simplicity 6287 - Jiffy Knits Dress, Pants And Top

Today's pattern from the past is Simplicity 6287 from 1974, a "Jiffy Knits" pullover dress or top and pants.
For stretch knits only, make this dress out of a patterned or solid fabric and then embellish it however you like.
Perhaps with appliqued flowers:
Or maybe with a fish or even a peacock as shown on the pattern front:
Dress it up with stars or a stylized vintage automobile:
Stitch it up in a cool patterned knit or add a clock face:
The possibilities are endless!
It looks pretty cute - and comfortable - to me.
If you have the right type of figure for it, that is!

Figure for it is right, although I guess I did have it in 1974! Check out the sharp hipbone on the model in the clock dress! I really like this pattern, nice and simple and very cute. Love T
