Butterick 4312 from the 60’s


My oh my, it’s been quite some time since I posted on Sew Retro! I thought I’d share my most recent creation.

I had to create a product for my basic color theory class that was inspired by a song and represented a complementary color scheme. My song of choice was Hawaiian Couple by Humming Urban Stereo, a South Korean electro band.

I really wanted to make a dress that I could picture someone wearing to dance to this song. I used Butterick 4312 from the 60’s. The fabric ended up being perfect since it has the color scheme I needed and is from the mid 60’s.
