Growing up in the Sixties, store bought clothes were expensive - my dresses were home-made by grandma or the local dressmaker. I had endless variations of this Swinging Sixties Mini Shift dress.

Sew your own peace, love and understanding with an instant download pattern (just 10 pages to cut and paste) plus a printable cheat sheet instruction page. For beginners, there's a detailed photo tutorial at the Clothesline website to take you through step-by-step.

You'll need just 1 metre of fabric to make your own variation of this classic Sixties mini. It's roomy in width, so can be worn as a pinafore. It may be fairly short on tall girls, so they may prefer it as a tunic with bought leggings.
