Description

This is a lovely frock I whipped up from an original Butterick design from the 1950s. It features a Peter Pan collar, side zip closure, curved Empire waist seam, and circular skirt. There are eight tucks down the upper bodice, and the dress looks perfect worn alone or with a sash or belt. To see many more pictures and the original pattern I used, hop on over to my blog!

Material Notes

Made from a cream colored eyelet material and trimmed with gold buttons.
