Butterick B5930 – The Ultimate 50s Party Dress!

July 28, 2016

Hi everyone!

Betty Draper eat your heart out. Now If this isn’t the most 1950s garden party dress you’ve ever seen, then I don’t know what is! And it isn’t even marked as a vintage pattern! But I think my choice of fabric and styling certainly gives this little number some serious retro credentials.





For my full pattern review & images, check out my blog The Crafty Pinup.

Thank you!

  1. Ack! I’ve got that pattern and enough linen fabric to make the view C with the slim skirt but with a contrast collar. I wish I’d seen your version before deciding, it is so much prettier than the view on the pattern envelope. The fabric is perfect for your complexion. Great job!
