|This pattern is a repro of an original 1921 pattern by the Butterick Design Company. The repro is copied on sturdy pattern paper, as are the original instructions. As the original, the repro is a single size.|
Pattern Description: "Dress for misses or small women, in bustle effect, with draped Basque closed at left underarm, and draped straight skirt attached to a slip-over long underbody marked for camisole top."
Pattern Sizing: 37" bust, 39" hips
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? For an almost 100 year old pattern and instructions, they were. I was confused a few times but was able to figure things out.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Everything! I love the style, I love the bow, etc.
Fabric Used: Poly shantung. I really wanted to use silk fabric of some sort but it was too expensive for what I needed.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't make any alterations other than take it in a bit at the sides.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I won't sew it again because it's such a distinctive look but I definitely recommend it.
Conclusion: Great pattern for costumers and other retro loving people. For more blurb and more pictures, please see my blog.
