Vintage Butterick 503 : Lingerie Set consisting of a slip & knickers
Bust 36, Size 18
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, very easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked that it was so super quick to construct and made up of only 4 pieces.
I used a crushed taffeta in a wine/burgundy red with black lace to trim.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Since this pattern was not exactly my size, I did have to trim some off once cut to get the right fit for me but apart from that, no design changes.
I would however like to make this again & perhaps trim some flare off the skirt making it a little straighter & incorporate a side slit trimmed with narrower lace.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would sew this again & if you own this vintage pattern then I would recommend it absolutely.
Really easy but flattering lingerie slip. I have not made the knickers but maybe one day...
