That fabric sounds so interesting...despite all its difficulties sewing and shrinking/stretching...it looks lovely.

I have Butterick 6266 but didn't make it. I like the tulip sleeves.

Best wishes, Dee


Ahhhh, this dress is sooooo pretty on you!!!! You made me smile with your comments about my dress! :) Your version came out absolutely gorgeous - the fabric is to die for, and though it sounds like it was not the most enjoyable to sew with, it definitely was worth it as far as looks are concerned!!! Fabulous!! I likes seeing how that bodice looks on you, and the sleeves too! They are a perfect touch!
This might just be enough incentive for me to get to work on revamping my version a bit! The fabric's stretchiness (and my lack of proper fitting at the time it was made) combine to make it fit really badly, but it might just be worth fixing sometime! ;)
Thanks for the sweet shout-out!! And what a gorgeous dress!!

P.S. I don't know if I ever got around to commenting on your recent (super exciting <3) post, but CONGRATS on your baby-to-be!!!!! I'm sooooo happy for you and your husband!!! :D

Aw, thanks, Esther! That is my absolute favorite of your dresses, so I definitely think it would be worth revamping to make it fit better if that's what it needs!
