50s Cherry Dress

Retro Butterick '52 Wrap Dress (B4790)
So I should've kept sewing, but I just had to play with my new dress when I finished it!

(PS I had this fabric and pattern sitting around for over a year... why am I so slow?)


  1. ooo I like the fabric! I'd really like to make that pattern- since it seems everyone has and it looks good on all bodytypes- but I can't find it anywhere. Pretty dress!

  2. This dress is beautiful and this style looks great on you!

  3. Meg Needles-I don't think it's out of print... But I'd wait until patterns are on sale at JoAnn Fabrics.

    My issue with this pattern is the front piece, which you can't really see sitting down. It doesn't lay right over a crinoline, which is odd because the style of the back piece is very full (circle) and requires a crinoline for the right look. I haven't decided what to do with it yet to fix this.
