Dress #7 -- Butterick 5930

It took me longer than usual to make this one.

A modern pattern I made in a rockabilly style. This pattern was a bit of work. It's apparently "Easy" according to the package, but I wouldn't give this to a beginner to try to figure out, lol. The bodice lining is what took me so long. The skirt is also HUGE -- as in, VERY FULL. Overall, the pattern went together well and the instructions were pretty easy, but it was just a little time consuming if you have a full-time job, attend college, and aren't a super-sewer!


  1. This looks lovely! I think you would look great in one of our vintage dresses :)

  2. I'm putting this dress together myself. The lining does make it very difficult. Yours looks lovely!
