Description

This is my second version of the Butterick Retro ’47 dress. This time I used a silky knit fabric, and I definitely like the way the fabric hangs. Also, I pleated the skirt instead of gathering.

    This dress turned out beautifully! I made one in this pattern, but I made it two sizes too small as an incentive to lose weight. I’m going home to size up this pattern! Thank for the inspiration. You look lovely!
