Hickory, North C...
I used Butterick #4393 (a 1970s Jane Tise “Young Designer” pattern) to make this dress which has front and back yokes, a casual, flared silhouette and 3/4 length puffy sleeves. I was really lucky to find the vintage “floral brushstrokes” print cotton fabric at a local thrift for a mere $2.00 a yard! Although it has a very loose and unstructured fit, this was quite complicated to make due to the self-lined yokes, puffy sleeves (TONS of gathering involved), side seam pockets and topstitching. The construction definitely put many of my sewing skills to good use!
I used grey cotton shirting for the yokes, collar, front tab and cuffs. The sleeves and body are made from lovely vintage 1960s “floral brushstrokes” print cotton that I at a local thrift store for a mere $2.00!
