Retro Sewing 60's Butterick Pattern. Offered in three variations.
I cut an 18
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Absolutely! Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were really easy and pretty simple to follow. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved the shape of the dress but given my bust size I always have to make adjustments. I think if I make it again I would add a bust dart and increase the top slightly. Fabric Used:
Black Silk Dupioni Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
It was quite large at the 18 and I did have to take in two inches on both sides. I opted to also shorten the dress length for this particular look.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm thinking of making it in a print soon! Love the shape it gives and YES this is a totally great pattern to make and a wardrobe addition!! Conclusion:
This was a very easy project to complete and is a simple project to complete. It was a fun one even if I did take two weeks to hem it!! LOL
