Butterick 6018

in 1950s

My favourite vintage is definitely 50s style; swinging skirts and nipped-in waists.  This is a reproduction pattern Butterick  6018 which was new this season.

It wasn’t an easy pattern, quite a lot of bulk in places, but this would be minimised by a finer fabric (this was a synthetic crepe, but in my absolutely favourite duck egg blue).  I am generally happy with this dress, although I think it could be more fitted around the waist.  I cut a size 14 graded to a 16 at the bust.  More details on my blog (http://magscreativemeanderings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/butterick-6018-and-happy-july.html)

I’ve wanted a bow blouse for a while and this has a big one!  It’s made from bargain Liberty Tana Lawn.  For more details please visit my blog (magscreativemeanderings@blogspot.co.uk).

This is my attempt at a Chanel-style jacket, lovely for spring!   This was an enjoyable sew, for more details visit my blog at http://magscreativemeanderings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/gbsb-its-couture-week-vogue-7975.html

For my   entry in Julia’s challenge I decided to channel a bit of Joan.   The pattern is Burda 7178 which I think is quite authentic to the period.  I love the huge collar and pretty pleased overall, though the skirt could be tighter (or my curves bigger).  For more details please visit my blog at http://magscreativemeanderings.blogspot.co.uk
