This is the second time I have used this pattern: Vintage Butterick 2638. It is such a comfy fit. This one seemed to take a little longer than the first. Only because I made a few adjustments and included longer sleeves but I am happy with the result. Not totally sure what the fabric is. Its 100 per cent cotton and has a lovely rib going on. A friend of mine was decluttering and gave me a bag of mixed fabric. I knew what this was destined for as soon as I opened the bag!
I’m not sure it would be recognised as a vintage 40s dress, especially styled with wellies and a Hello Kitty brolly. But needs must in this relentlessly rainy UK climate! I’m so glad to have found the perfect home for these sweet little ‘target’ buttons.
