The Last Dance Dress

September 2, 2011

It’s done!!

I started sewing Butterick B5281 for a dance I was going to last October, didn’t get it done in time and went with plan B. I recently picked it up again, for another dance I didn’t get to (long story) and with the help of some the lovely people here at Sew Retro, it is now finished.

Thanks to everyone who offered advice & encouragement, it was invaluable.

  1. Bravo, très joli.
    You encouraged me to cut and sew some retro dresses. Thanks a lot! Your dress is very pretty.
    And you to, wearing it.

  2. I, too, have this pattern and plan on making it in the near future. The dress is beautiful and looks gorgeous on you. It's such a classic dress and you constructed it beautifully. I am glad you didn't give up on this dress and left it as an UFO.
