Introduction and Retro Butterick 6307

December 15, 2013

Hello, everybody! I am new here and have been really wanting to join earlier but never took photographs of my pieces. This dress is Retro Butterick 6307 that I think is out of print now. I made it a while ago, and it was my first set-in sleeve. I used regular medium weight cotton. Everything was pretty easy, and of course I had to take it in a bit. I would definitely reccomend this to anyone. I have under it a crinoline I also made using  Edelweiss’s crinoline tutorial here: http://www.edelweisspatterns.com/blog/?p=850 (sorry, I have not yet figured out how to make a regular link!). It was really easy despite my mistakes and the crinoline fabric getting jammed in my machine all the time.

I apologize for the bad pictures, I don’t know how to get good ones yet.

 

I am currently working on a peplum shirt from 1951, and will be done with it shortly in order to post it here! Thanks for looking!
