man, i miss my fashion blog! i am so excited about this post! butterick, see and sew, pattern number b5774 is the pattern i used to make this summer dress. I found this vintage polyester green houndstooth at a thrift store for about $2. i love the elastic sleeves and neckline. i need to customize the elastic waistband, in the meantime i used a cute little tie!
i also decided to use the wrong side of the fabric as the contrast for the hem, sleeve hemming and neckline. i added the pocket on the front, too! can't wait to use this pattern for the next dress!
