This dress I sewed at the beginning of this years summer. I fell in love with this pattern right in that moment I saw it. I like these line of retropatterns from Butterick very much, even I have much work to find the right fit especially in the body. Maybe it’s becouse of that there are still some wrinkles in there I couldn’t get away. But perhaps it’s of the pattern itself, too – on the envelope in the last picture you can see that the pattern allows to wear the dress in different ways. I prefere to knot the body over my shoulders and love the dress even if there are some wrinkles.
I wear the dress with a little petticoat underneath and a cardigan of Lena Hoschek.
cotton with grey and white stripes, selfmade fabricbuttons with the same fabric, polytaft with rosy and white stripes for the lining
