Strawberry retro sheath dress

This dress was actually a wearable muslin but I am glad I used a cute fabric as it fitted well. It is always a gamble using a decent fabric when making a wearable muslin but if it does fit and I hate the fabric it would be a shame too! When I first saw the retro sheath dress pattern posted on Burdastyle I knew I had to make it at some point, luckily the opportunity arose when I was searching for patterns that would work for a design hack I had in mind. This pattern is supposedly 60’s inspired but it feels much more 1940’s to me. I posted a tutorial for this dress and can’t wait to wear it all summer!
