Description

This dress is a pattern from Butterick B6052 view C, the first one of this company i ever used. I had some difficulties for the sizes, because i’m used to european sizes. My Eur size is 42 , so i had to make a muslin first in size 14 to be sure before cutting the fabric (fortunately i did it! i now know my US size, which is 16). The original pattern was a very long maxi dress but decided to make a shorter dress with ruffles at the bottom. I kept the top of the pattern and added an additional spaghetti traps to have a neat cleavage, not a baggy one.
the fabric is a wax cotton fabric. You can have such fabrics here: vlisco.com, they have tons of beautiful fabrics you’ll love!

    this is gorgeous and you look wonderful ! love the shoes with it. I still get confused when using American sizes. Took me a while to realize, English size 14 not the same as American size 14 :-)
