A Trip Back to the 50’s

What dress will I make? Was the first thing I though after finding out about an upcoming 1950’s murder mystery dinner.

After some searching, my dress of choice was Butterick 4790 formerly Butterick 6015, the extremely popular walk-away dress. It is totally fuss-free with the back and front all in one piece. Fast easy to sew and fit too! I will be making this again.

I did a tie closure for both front and back to make it event easier to throw on and “walk-away”.

The dress kind of looks like a crossing guard vest on the hanger with the ties.

It was a great time and a great pattern find.
