Celebration Dress

December 30, 2011

I made Butterick 6582 – the 60’s retro reprint – as part of the Sew Weekly Celebration challenge.  The dress was so fast and easy to make, and I love how it turned out.

This dress almost didn’t happen.  I originally made another dress as part of the Sew Weekly Celebration challenge, but I hated it. I guess you have to accept that if you’re making your clothes, every once in a while you’re going to have a flop.

Anyways, I thought I could move on, but the challenge was looming over my head.  It was the last one of 2011. I could totally do this.  I spent the beginning of the week cleaning out my sewing room, and revisiting my stashed fabric and patterns.  I found three yards of a green silk shantung that I bought over a year ago and matched it up with Butterick 6582.  It seemed like the perfect party dress.
