A New Dress for Halloween!06:00
I got Butterick 5917 pattern ages ago when I was looking for patters to suit my shape.
Technically it should suit me, being empire line and having detail at the bust to draw attention away from my non defined waist. I didn't bother with the bust ruffle on this version, it is really a wearable muslin.
The fabric is very old (1960's) that came from a Great Aunt's house years ago, black with white stars. I thought it would be a perfect witch's dress for Halloween.
The next dress I have to post about is even worse, no wonder my desire to sew for myself has been non existent!
