Yet another incarnation of the Butterick 4790 dress. But it's such an awsome pattern, does it matter if everyone's already made one? Mine's made with polycotton for both the plain red and the polka dot section. I've used vintage buttons for the hidden one at the back and the 3 red ones at the front. It does look a little rumpled at the top as I'm really short waisted and didn't make any alterations.

It is an awesome dress!

It looks really good on you, and love the colors you chose. I love red and white together- so contrasting. Great job- now I want one!

I love the fabric choices! For being shortwaisted it looks like it fits well.

It is gorgeous, and I love the polkadots!  Obviously it is a great pattern, since everyone is making them.... hmmmm.... It fits really nicely on you too. Great job! 

How does it feel under the arms?  That is always a place I have trouble with non-stretch.   Very nice work!
