My Walk-Away Dress
Added Oct 17, 2010
I have this amazing pair of shoes. Pink, blue, white and orange. Such shoes deserve a matching dress. So I made this version of the retro Butterick 4790 dress. It’s not perfect – even after some adjustments. It’s a little big around the bust area and a little tight around the waist (which surprised me as I usually have to take in dresses around the waist area). I also lengthened the dress front and back as I am rather tall and I figured that the pattern was not made for tall women. I shouldn’t have done that – I had to try and shorten it again, not so easy. Anyways, the dress is very very easy to sew – and now I know what to do – and especially what not to do :-)
The pink fabric is cotton and the dotted a blend.
