Description

Another project using fabric from my stash. I had a retro-themed party to go to, so I made myself a quintessential 1960’s dress based on Butterick 5748 (a retro re-issue pattern). It also works for everyday wear, just not with the puffy crinolines. Blogged here

Material Notes

Cotton brocade. Bodice lined with some sort of lining fabric of unknown fiber content.

    Very nice! I love that colour, and any dress with a big twirly skirt is automatically a winner in my book.
