Vintage Sewing

Butterick vintage 6582 1960s pattern

December 24, 2011

I m new to Sew Retro but I have to admit I m a massive fan and have been for many years. I ve decided to dust my sewing machine off for Christmas and make myself a dress. I m such a lazy sewer – I ve got cupboards full of half finished projects! but I really wanted a lace dress and I haven’t seen quite the right one in the shops. This is made up from butterick 6582- I love this pattern, although I made it a size bigger than I normally wear and it fits perfectly. I m planning to make the full skirt version next summer too, maybe in a print cotton.

  1. Thanks for the lovely comments. I really enjoyed making this dress. I love looking at all of the dresses on this community- everyone is so talented. You all really inspire me to sew!
