1. Hey astrid i tried to make this exact dress!! I made mine out of a blue check with a little bit of stretch in it…but quite a heavy fabric..it was too big for me from what i remember but i love the look of yours! might be worth digging the pattern out and trying it in a smaller size.

    great dress!

    happy sewing,
    Allison

  2. Very interesting. Thanks for the comment, Allison. I've read that certain pattern makers ran bigger than others. So, perhaps Butterick from this era ran bigger? I haven't had many issues with Simplicity from the same time frame.

  3. It's funny you should write that, Eleen, because that was EXACTLY why I bought the fabric : – ) It is a really pretty color.
