I went to a wedding last weekend and had to make a new dress to wear. It was a relatively informal garden wedding so I didn’t want to get too fancy. I knew I wanted a wrap bodice but a non-wrap skirt, so I used the bodice front and back of Butterick See & Sew 5546 and the circley skirt of McCalls 6599, with “self-drafted” tulip sleeves. I used the sash from the Butterick pattern but instead of sewing it to the dress and weaving it through one of the sides, it’s just a free belt that is tied in a bow and held up with thread loops.
