wiggle dress toile

Added May 6, 2013


Southend On Sea,...






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.

    I agree, the style and Toile fabric match up unexpectedly but perfectly. It’s got a 60s’ feel to it. Well done.

    I think this is a nice shape on you, more sophisticated, but then your jungle dress is great fun! But I bet this would look stunning in a stronger colour – look forward to seeing the result, whatever you decide!
