1950s Vintage Red Dress

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Butterick 5708 Link to website or photo butterick.mccall.com/b5708-products-15269.php?page_id=147 What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the skirt. It was the first time I've made a full skirt before (and there was SO much fabric, even after gathering), but it turned out beautifully. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Double check the fitting of the top. The neckline drapes, which I didn't realize before I started, or I would have made it a little more fitted.

What you will need

  • red satin fabric
