I used Butterick 5853, had the two fabrics for this project in my stash. I omitted what I thought was a strange bow on the front bodice. I love the detailed bodice. This dress has boning and is fully lined. The pattern is way off on the amount of boning it says to use in the bodice. Pattern states 1/2 yard when in fact it took 1 3/4 yards.
