I hope everyone had a good weekend, in the realm of sewing or otherwise! I finished another version of Butterick 6574, the sundress from 1953 that I've made twice already. I made one minor tweak to the fit, and tried a new-to-me technique that I think makes this version the best one yet! But I have no photos, so I'll save those details for another day.
Today I started a new project with another vintage pattern, this one dating from 1968. I'm making view C (on the right) on the pattern envelope. The fabric is some shirting I got on clearance at High Fashion Fabrics a while back, and I cut the center bodice panel on the bias, as shown in the illustration. I'm a little unsure about how much I'll like that raised neckline, and debated changing it, but I decided what the heck, I'll give it a try. Maybe I'll love it. As is my preference, I'm fully lining the dress rather than use the fistful of facing pieces that exploded out of the envelope. I'm really glad I don't have to figure those out!
