Description

Retro Butterick ’46 B5281

I had mom take some snapshots after church. It’s a little chilly today (4/21/13). I accessorized with pearl earrings, necklace and red/pink lipstick I had my hair is loose, slightly poofy waves. My old tap shoes made another appearance, and no outfit is complete without sunglasses. :)

I hate shoulder pads and I have no desire to look like a linebacker, so I took the sleeves in a little. I love this dress’s skirt. It makes me feel like dancing. :)

    Really lovely. It’s a very young style and the fabric is great.
