Hi, I’m Melissa, a blogger and longtime sewing enthusiast from the central coast of California. This is my first post on WeSewRetro. I’m so excited to share one of my favorite sewing projects with fellow vintage lovers!
The idea for this project began when I found this amazing fabric at a thrift store in the form of some old curtains. I loved the print and the colors, and I knew I could give those curtains new life as a dress. I decided to try it out on one of my new retro Butterick patterns, #5748. I modified the pattern slightly due to the directional design of my fabric, making a gored skirt instead of the circle skirt of the pattern. I made the bow removable so I can change the look a little bit.
