I made this dress for the holidays. I used Butterick 5603, a vintage reproduction. As my fabric was busy, I decided to make it without the bows. It’s a very easy pattern and a great style. I am looking forward to make another with the bows this time.

      Is it a correct expression? I am sure I’m making a lot of mistakes in English, oups…

    Beautiful! I love how the fabric reverses inside. I agree it was best kept simple. It looks fabulous on you :-)

      Thanks so much. I wasn’t sure which side to use at the beginning but as my wardrobe is already full of blue, I decided for the green one. I am planning to use the bow pattern for a plain fabric. By the way, I really like your blog!
