Simplicity 9544 Pattern for Misses’ Mini Dress & Short Shorts, Vintage Hot Pants Pattern, Size 16, From 1971, Vintage Pattern, Home Sewing Pattern, Easy Sew Pattern



I have a story to go with this pattern. I made this pattern in 1971 out of black double knit polyester. When I married in 1972, we went on our honeymoon to New York City. New hubby made a photo of me on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and I am wearing the black hot pants. In the background is the World Trade Center, not quite finished. My daughter found this photo recently and was so in awe of it. She posted it on FB but I couldn’t find it to post it here. Maybe later I will find the photo. I DID NOT have any awesome boots like shown on the pattern to wear!
