Description

Edith is currently my favourite dress at the moment. Yes, I love her so much, I gave her a name.

She is a vintage-inspired 60s summer dress made using Butterick 6582, a retro reissue of the original pattern that was printed in the 60s.

    Oh wow, when I saw the pattern cover of this dress I did not like it all, but I love the way yours turned out. Butterick should use your dress in their promotion of this pattern.

    Hehe! I’d recognise that fabric anywhere! It’s one of my faves. Even though I work at Spotlight I never know when things are going on sale. I bought three meters of this at full price only to discover a week later it had ended up on clearance for $3! I bought more though, tee hee. I love this Butterick pattern too! Good job x

      Thanks! xx

      I almost only ever buy fabric that is on sale at Spotlight! I actually have a couple of other fabrics from that design range. ;)
