Vintage Sewing

Outfit number three!

July 7, 2010

     This is Retro Butterick 4513, I talked about it earlier here. I made it from a vintage sheet from a thrift store in Ventura. Over all I really like this pattern, I might even make it again.

I cut out a size 12 but the bust was too big. If I use this pattern again I’ll make the bodice smaller and use thinner bias tape for the straps.


  1. I have been wanting to make this dress forever. It turned out great! I love that the skirt is so full. So many times it looks full in the photo, but turns out to be more slim that I had hoped. Great work!

  2. Ana – Your dress is really cute and well done. Just wondering if you are wearing a petticoat. Just wondering if that's how the skirt naturally came out due to the cut or did it need help in "flaring out." Great job!
