It uses 6-3/8 of 45" wide (I used a Calico print from JoAnn's).

How many yards of the quilting fabric did you use for this Size 14 dress? GREAT job, BTW.

Thats very nice. I like the neatness of your pleats & gathers. The back shaping is very nice also.

Thanks! I will definitely take pictures wearing it, as I've worked hard and recently lost over 20 lbs!

Beautiful job - I love the pleating and all the wonderful details. Having done a few Butterick "historical" patterns recently, it's nice to see a real historical pattern made up, and done so well. And a picture of you wearing it would be great.

I love historical costumes: the details differ from most contemporary styles and are so fascinating. Your cartridge pleating and back yoke turned out beautifully.

Your dress is beautiful and so authentic looking with the fabric and style. Have fun wearing it this weekend. Can you post a picture of you wearing it along with your hat? We'd love to see you in it.
