Fi made it in printed cotton and the attraction of this pattern is that it can be worn with a few neckline variations.

Vintage Butterick Pattern 5708 –

This vintage dress features a bias cut front and back bodice, it is self lined, and has a gathered full skirt.

There is a side zipper and due to the bulk of the skirt Fiona elected to use a centred zipper- an invisible zipper would not have had the strength to cope with the bulky intersecting side/waist seams.

Fiona plans to enter the National Vintage Fashion Awards coming to Geelong on the 29th and 30th November.
