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.

  • Oooh, I have this pattern. It looks fantastic sewn up. I may have to move it higher on the sewing list. Beautiful job.

  • Also glad you persevered, it looks fantastic and really suits you. Gorgeous fabric too!

  • 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.

  • This is gorgeous, and you look fabulous in it. The style and fabric is adorable.

  • It is very, very pretty. And like others above it inspires me to try it as I also have the pattern.
