Description

This dress is made from Butterick 5603, a newly reissued vintage pattern from the 1950s. I highly recommend this one if you love vintage dresses – it went together really easily! My version has shortened shoulder straps, and is about 5 inches shorter than the original. More photos may be found on my blog

    I love Butterick’s vintage patterns. I find that they’re often quite easy to work with. And you did a great job, I love the fabric.

    Lovely dress, it’s so cute with those straps on the shoulders, and it has a nice back too!
