Second dress from this pattern. It’s a vintage Butterick (5448), which I also used for my Babar dress. It’s amazing how different the same pattern can look! This time I used a Pendleton wool for the top and a lycra wool blend for the bottom. I can’t seem to stay away from this color combination lately. Embellished it with hand painted details on the collar, pockets and buttons. Very nerve-wracking, but well worth the result.
