Vintage Sewing

April 23, 2011

This is a dress I made from a retro Butterick pattern (B4790). I have to say this is my second dress. The pattern is “Fast & Easy”…. well I wanted this dress to be perfect so it took me a long time to have it done. My nine years old nephew did the pictures and we had lot of fun making the pics together. Now he wants to become a professional photographer 😉

More pictures on my blog coming soon… http://ellepetille.over-blog.com

  1. Your dress is fantastic Claire! I recently purchased this pattern and have been trying to decide what fabric to use. Did it take around 4 yards to make your dress? Sam xox

  2. Yes it took around 4 yards to have it done.
    The dress is quite heavy because most of the fabric is on the backside, so I would recommend to use a thin fabric,

  3. I made this dress 5 or so years ago! It was fun to do. I read recently that this was the most sold pattern ever. Your version is very pretty!
