A Sunny Day Dress

September 8, 2010

This peplum dress was made by combining the alexander blouse pattern and the skirt from my overused vintage butterick B5032. The bodice comes with ruffled sleeves and pleated front and back created by using various darts and gathers. The front is attached using buttons and button loops while the back an invisible zipper and hidden button. This is not an easy dress to make but I enjoyed the process of learning very much.
