Convertible Drawstring Dress – Quick! Butterick 6135 Fast & Easy 1978

This vintage pattern was a nice simple sew, even if the fabric being stretch jersey was a little difficult to control, but I (eventually lol) found out that using the correct stretch needle can mean the difference. The dress can be worn in 3 different ways: strapless (with a front tied bow), halter neck (with ties crossing at front), and one shoulder (with one arm through the ‘keyhole’). I found this pile of print jersey in the op-shop for a couple of bucks, this is a cooling number for wearing at the beach bar.
