Description

This retro style dress is based on Butterick 5603 pattern. The fabric is 100 cotton quilting fabric, with poplin for lining. When I first saw this fabric with blue floral pattern, I did not believe it look good I bought it because it was on sale for cheap price. I am surprised it turns out beautiful on this dress.

      Thank you for the comment. I did a fitting muslin down to the hip line to get a good fit.

    I am always tempted to make dresses from cotton quilting fabric! It looks good.

    It looks so summery and fresh! Also, cheap fabrics make the best dresses. One of the best kept secrets.
