Description

I was recently traveling in China and bought some wonderful silk fabrics. This is vintage pattern from 1963 (Butterick 5951). Fits wonderfully, didn’t have to adjust a thing :)

      thanks, pattern is really good, probably would work even better with less busy print to show off the detail.

    This dress is lovely and looks gorgeous on you. I travelled to China this year and bought some beautiful silks too. It was so hard to choose and limit myself.
