Patterns From The Past: Simplicity 5015 - Lori's Dress For The Senior Ball

Here's a blast from the past, all right!
Lori and her boyfriend, all decked out for the Senior Ball, circa 1972:
 She made her gorgeous dress from Simplicity pattern number 5015
How cute are they?
The pattern:
And we even have a little fabric swatch, courtesy of her 4-H book:
And, lastly, the pattern back for you:
 And a good time was had by all - at "The Ball".
I was there, too!
 But I didn't make my dress.
Our high school boyfriends just happened to share the same birthday.
And that would be TODAY.
Happy 59th birthday, guys!
