This is a toile for the Butterick B5813 retro dress, A. size 22.As it’s only a toile it is unlined so the neck and collar are not correct, but as I only wanted to check the size I don’t mind. I know the fabric is terrible and the pattern doesn’t match very well but I only used it because I was given loads and it is the right weight. I am going to a 50s wedding and can’t decide whether to make this wiggle dress or a full skirted dress like my jungle one. I shortened the sleeve and the length of the dress as I’m only 5’5.
