Southend On Sea,...
I was given the Butterick 6238, 50s dress pattern and I have made up a toile dress from some green fabric I was given, so I don’t know what fabric it is, I think its curtaining because it is quite a firm fabric but hangs well. The pattern is an easy one to follow it has a centre back zip and I need to give the bottom part a good iron , I made a size 24 but I find the bat wings are a bit big, so the back is a bit puffy, the sleeves should be just below the elbow and the length is a bit long. I made the belt to match. the pattern on the fabric is like tree bark and is bit over powering for the dress.
Go far afield in wrap dresses, detailed jackets, and comfy separates for fall.
