Description

This dress is a Butterick retro pattern. I modified it a little, giving it a new type of closure so I could add these adorable buttons, and using two patterns/fabrics.

    Oh, do it! I really love how it turned out and would love to see how yours looks too!

    I love your version! I am working on my own as I speak. I might imitate your closure, if you don’t mind :)

    I love them too! And yes, the front wraps around to the back too, but it doesn’t close so it’s kind of like a hospital gown in that regard. Slightly unnerving in the wind, as it’s a circle skirt with lots of movement!

    Very pretty! Does the front wrap to the back and button as well? I love vintage patterns.
