Vintage Sewing

My daughter in vintage Butterick B4790

January 29, 2012

I was so excited to make this dress for my daughter, not only was it sinfully easy to sew, it turned out exactly how I wanted it to after a couple of alterations. The waist is tricky with this pattern, it’s important to measure the length of the back of the dress for the sides to meet.

I found cute skull buttons!
  1. I love this dress. I have made several of them and it just looks good no matter what. And is super flattering on just about everyone. Great job. She looks wonderful in it.

  2. Ah, the infamous Walk Away Dress. . . I’ve made this before with mixed results. There are a lot of reviews and photos online if you’re thinking about making another one. Your daughter has the perfect 1950s look. Love the contrast trim!
