Description

I know I know, not AGAIN! But I love this pattern! (Butterick 2952)
Plus every version I have is a little different from the other. This one is sleeveless like the red one, but with a V-back and a scoop neck (so I basically mixed view B and C of the pattern and added some of my own drafting). And it was the first time I tried a lapped zipper (looks a little weird at the top because of the v-back but I don’t mind…)

I’m posting about this dress on my blog soon.

Material Notes

cotton broadcloth, petersham ribbon and hook and bar for waist-stay, metal zipper

    I adore your dress! I wish I could make it for myself. The colour is great, love your belt and your red shoes. Great job!

    Looks lovely. I adore your belt! Have you tried a hook and eye at the top of the zipper to help the lap stay closed?
