Nothing to wear this morning so what else could i do but make a new dress…. straight from the “cut but not sewn” box. Butterick 6964, an adorable vintage wrap dress.
I didnt complete the dress exactly according to the directions. The pattern calls for an elastic casing and self made belt which I omitted opting instead for a plain old black sash from another dress and no elastic. The dress has gathered yokes at the front and back.
I got this great printed fabric from the phoenix surplus fabric store S & S fabric. I got about 4 yards for $5!!
Im pleased with the way it turned out and how frighteningly fast I finished it (about 2 hours) I would love to find fabric like the adorable sailboat print and do this dress all other again!!
