The Last Dance Dress

It’s done!!

I started sewing Butterick B5281 for a dance I was going to last October, didn’t get it done in time and went with plan B. I recently picked it up again, for another dance I didn’t get to (long story) and with the help of some the lovely people here at Sew Retro, it is now finished.

Thanks to everyone who offered advice & encouragement, it was invaluable.

I have been collecting & sewing from Vintage patterns (30s-50s) for the past 5 years. My favourite era to sew is the 40s & the style suits me to a tea.

  • I, too, have this pattern and plan on making it in the near future. The dress is beautiful and looks gorgeous on you. It's such a classic dress and you constructed it beautifully. I am glad you didn't give up on this dress and left it as an UFO.
