Retro Butterick B5748


Retro Butterick B5748

AKA 

The 'Thouraya' Dress

When I was younger I was told my name meant a constellation of stars which was pretty awesome and the interweb confirms it means 'stars and planets'. So I thought I could aptly name this dress after myself when I found this amazing constellation fabric!

I was also lucky enough to have a wonderful pattern on hand. I made a dress for a friend who is getting married and wanted a dress the same as her bridesmaids! It is a lovely dress made from a gorgeous liberty print that I will share soon...and since I fell in love with the pattern I made one for me too!




I love the shape of the back and I must say it passes the twirl test with flying colours!

  2. It looks gorgeous on you! It always amazes me how lovely these vintage patterns turn out with more modern fabrics....a lovely balance of old and new.

  3. That is one beautiful dress. I love that it has some serious twirl but at the same time it isn't all poufy. Thanks for sharing the pattern.
