Butterick Retro ‘52 Fast & Easy pattern B4790. This dress was really easy to make but took a long time due to the vast amount of fabric, it’s basically a double sided apron, you do the front up with a button at the back, and then wrap the back around to your front and fasten with snaps, if that makes sense. Only alteration I made was making the skirt about 20cm shorter.
Thick cotton, very bright 60’s ish pattern was quite worried when I laid all 4.5 meters out on the floor, it made my eyes hurt.
