Posing in the garden……

April 10, 2008

Spring has sprung and I’m a poseur so here is my Butterick 4512, MUCH modified in the bodice, did ladies in the 50s have an extra pair of bosoms under each arm and necks like tree trunks?
Thank you to the pink broom for set dressing.
All I need now is to make a petticoat, and to find somewhere to wear the frock!
I used a cotton lycra drill, I hung the frock over night, waiting for the bias to drop, it did’nt, so I washed the frock and re hung it, the hem just stayed level, how marvelous was that 🙂
