I was gifted with some vintage fabric this spring, so a fun project this summer was to engineer a way to squeeze a 1950s dress out of the minimal yardage! (and why are vintage fabrics soooo narrow??) I pulled out my trusty Butterick reprint 5920 and after playing a bit of pattern Tetris, I succeeded!
The finished product is perfect for sunny days- light in color so it doesn’t soak up extra heat, and covered on the neck and shoulders so I don’t have to worry about sunburn!
