Dalhart, Texas, ...
I made this dress in March of 2012 right after my hysterectomy. I needed a comfy dress that would help camouflage my swelling. This pattern a old Butterick 5307 was larger than my other patterns (a size up) so it made the cut. I skipped the zip and instead added a button, my reach was not so good then. I also shortened it by 12 inches so it would be knee length on me. I added some lace trim to the bottom of dress. I don’t wear it often now, its real loose all over. I made option “C”. Second to last picture my husband snapped of me wearing dress about 2 months after my surgery.
Pattern Butterick 5307 (1950s I think)
1 1/2 yard cotton fabric that I was saving for a quilt
