Blue Rose Dress

This is my version of vintage butterick 9752. I used a paneled cotton jacquard, with a bright blue rose print. The fabric was a score from fabricmartonline.com at only $ 3.99 a yard. The dress is a mix of butterick 9752 for the back and directions and my go to current pattern, simplicity 2444. I wanted the fit to be perfect so I used the modern pattern for the skirt and the front, and the back is a higher version of the scoopneck vintage pattern. I love that the butterick pattern called for jumbo ric rac. I have always wanted to use it! For more about this dress please visit my blog, ErikaMadeIt

  • This is absolutely stunning – well done! I’m a huge fan of boarder prints but it’s so hard to find a one as nice as this. And the style is perfect for it.
    Along with everyone else I love the ric rac – I can’t believe I’ve never noticed it being used like this before!

  • It’s absolutely beautiful – I love the fabric (I’ve got a huge weak spot for blue rose prints!), the fifties style and the finishing touches. You should be really proud of yourself. x
