Vintage Sewing

“Orange Flower” Sheer Cotton Dress

January 16, 2017

Ok, this might not technically be vintage, but it is certainly chock full of retro style.  So I went with the 30’s feel of one of the views and made a great warm weather dress out of a sheer floral cotton.  I used Butterick’s #5951, from year 2013.

I had problems with the fit of this pattern, especially the sleeves, but with the help of an added underarm gusset this dress is a success.  Especially since I squeezed this in with having just under two yards of fabric to work with!
