Description

I used Butterick 5490 to make this dress. One can never have too many floral sundresses (if only summer went on longer!) Blogged here

Material Notes

Silk/cotton stretch twill. Really nice weight for all the pleats, if a bit hard to work with (but then, I always find stretch fabrics to be difficult.)

    this is so lovely…I love the drape of the skirt…did you change it from the original pattern? – it looks so much more refined than on the pattern envelope :)
