Butterick 6582

I finished the Butterick 6582 wiggle dress, made from the thrifted bed sheet.....

It's way too cute.
Gossamer thin.
It will need a slip.
I liked the bow details at the shoulders.

There is a slit in the back to make it easier to walk. I put two little crystal buttons at the top to close the zipper.

It turned out very pretty and girly and fresh.... just what I wanted.
Unfortunately..... I did cut it too small. I need to drop a dress size to wear it.
I will totally wear this when I can get into it. I think it's a pretty good use of 2.99 and a day off.

The Beginnings of Butterick 6582

This is what I decided to do with the blue rose print sheets.

I had the thread and the zipper in the studio just waiting for me and the pattern was there too. I made this for the first time four years ago. So far this project has cost me 2.99 for the sheet.
I think I may have cut it too small though.
