The pattern is butterick 5748, a lovely 1960s retro pattern with a lower neckline in the back. Size 10 fits me very nice in the bust area, but I had to taper to size 14 at the waist. I also lenghtened the bodice, as I have to do with any pattern. The dress went together very quick, most of the time I gave to the hem, which had to hang around a while, because it is a circle skirt ;)
