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? 🙂

    P.S. My boyfriend took one look at your pic and said, "She looks just like Yvonne Craig, Batgirl!" :>)

    Batgirl!? Well, nothing wrong with that. Thank you, and thank him for me!
