This dress is Butterick 4790 which is retro ’52 dress.It is a sheath-and-overskirt look dress, which is very pretty and nice, however; you do run into the problem of the dress separating whilst you walk.
I made it out of cotton and contrast bias tape which I like because it is very easy to do.
This is a dream dress and I will be making more!!!
The only alteration I made was to take in the front bodice and add a bow.
