1952 Butterick Wrap Dress – This is my version of the infamous Walkaway wrap dress. I made quite a few adjustments, its an easy dress but needs adjustments if you want a nice fit. I like adding to patterns too, so I went a bit mad. You need a slip for this dress too. This is what I did:
*I don’t like having bare arms and I LOVE ruffles, so I added two layers of ruffles as sleeves, including one layer of black brodiere anglaise.
*The length was too long for me, so I took 6 inches off and added vintage black lace as a trim.
*Bow, I also love bows, rather than have buttons I added a bow, I love black and cream together and the bow allows for some desert after dinner unlike buttons!! I also added elastic to the back of the front panel to keep it in place as it tends to ride up.
