Description

When I saw the pattern for this dress I knew that I wanted it. It’s a pattern from Butterick (B4790) – a Fast & Easy-pattern. The dress is one single piece and worn it looks amazingly. The dress is made out of cotton fabric, no lining – because of that I use bias tape for the selvages.

Material Notes

cotton, bias tape, snap fasteners, elastic band

      Thank you – the fabric goes perfect with this pattern. The dress has to be pulled over the head. the front skirt has to be closed in the back with snap fasteners and then the back skirt is pulled to the front and also closed with snap fasteners. And it makes people look at you and wondering how you got into it ;))
