Fabric: vintage find from a yard sale.

Pattern: Butterick B4967

Size: 5, 1 inch added to bodice, 2 inches to bottom layer of skirt, and 1 inch to top layer of skirt for proportion

Modifications: Because the fabric is thin and the lining significantly changes the drape, I added lining to the upper skirt layer. This also allowed me to avoid hemming the circular hem of the layer. I used an invisible zipper. I added loops for the ribbon sash.

All told, I am very pleased with the way this dress turned out. I think the ribbon gives it just the right touch.
