So, lately I've been buying retro/vintage sewing patterns from Vogue and Butterick (yes - it's indeed me, Eva, who's buying patterns instead of making them myself). It started with a sale and then I registered for the newsletter and then there was another sale...

Anyway, one of the patterns was Butterick 4919 from 1952. I used the striped cotton I bought a couple of weeks ago in Shepherd's Bush.
The pattern worked well, though I needed to straighten the shoulders and when I make it next time I might try and make it a little bigger of the bust - it's not that it isn't wide enough, it's just that it's made for smaller boobs and a wider back.

But in all, I'm happy with it:

Nice! :-) I like the wrapped waist detail.

Me too, especially since that what makes it easy to fit even if you have a weird body shape.

That's a great dress! I also like the waist twist.
... and the shoes are perfect ;)
