Hi this is my first post on We Sew Retro and I am very excited to begin sharing my sewing creations. I am one of the Brentwood sisters and love making vintage inspired dresses. I found this dress on Mod Cloth, but really wanted it in red. So, I used two patterns (Butterick 5209 for the skirt and McCall’s 9279 View C for the bodice ) to create a similar look. To find out more about the dress and patterns here’s a link to the original post.
