green polyester houndstooth

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!
