Lucerne, Switzer...






Another Butterick 2952! This time with a scoop neckline and short sleeves. More about this dress on my blog

Pattern: Butterick 2952 (same as for the red sheath dress)
Year: early 60s
Fabric: about 1.5 yards pink cotton broadcloth
Notions: zipper
Time: ca. 12 hours
Cost: about $11

the zipper broke the first time I wore it, so I fixed it and finally put the waist-stay in to make sure it didn’t happen again :)

Material Notes

1.5 yards pink cotton broadcloth




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Classic, Vintage
