Three Cheers – a dress in a day!

I made Butterick 5214 (a reissue from 1947) yesterday, from start to finish in time for an afternoon Independence Day BBQ! You can read about it at my blog, ShoesAndPie.

  • Tiger28, it was easy as pie! The dress itself is only a few pieces, with no tricky bits. NOTE: It's supposed to be lined with the same fabric, but I used solid white so the pattern wouldn't show through. Keep show-through in mind when you choose your fabric!

    Of note: This dress has an on-seam POCKET! How can you not love it? :)
