This is the third dress I made from Butterick 4790 (the “walkaway” dress), with a few adjustments to achieve a perfect fit. When viewing the main sample garment for the Butterick pattern on their website, I noticed that it looked quite a bit different than the original pattern cover from 1953! So I came up with a method for altering the tissue pattern to fit properly, and I’ve also discovered that any 50s dress looks much better with a crinoline and corset underneath! I’ve given complete instructions on my blog , and you can see many more pictures of this dress here
The front panel is a stretch matte satin from Telio & Cie fabrics, and the pink rayon crepe was purchased for $2.50 a yard!
