I made this dress using Butterick 5486. It was a good learning experience, and there are a few things I’ll do different next time. Before I made it I didn’t consider myself a maxi-dress person, but I fell in love with this one! I love it for the summer :)
I can’t remember the exact material, but I believe it is some sort of cotton blend. It was wonderful to work with.
