Retro with a fresh print
So, I always like to try a pattern at least twice before I retire the pattern. If you remember, I made the Butterick 5556, which I posted here. I love that pattern so much that I used part of it to create a few other dress styles, here and here. Well, I decided that before I retire the pattern I would make it again. This time, I used a stretch cotton for the bodice and completed the skirt with a grey cotton. The skirt is lined with the same fashion fabric. It was fun making this dress, I especially love the side zipper and the stand up collar. In this version, I did not include the front pockets.
