Graduation at my high school is quite a to-do, and there's a banquet the night before the actual ceremony, so I needed a dress. I had picked up a pattern and fabric in the States last summer, and made this. It looks grey in the pictures but is actually black with tiny cream stripes, in a very retro sort of way.

It's Butterick 4183 view B, and I really liked the pattern, if I ever need a dress in a hurry I'll make this one again.



Back Shot:


The straps and trim are black sheer ribbon, and really added a nice touch, I think. Excuse the wrinkles as these were taken after the banquet itself.

That is SUCH a lovely dress. You look really great in it, and it looks really, really well-made, too! What difficulty was the pattern rated at? I bought a Butterick pattern for a top last year ot thereabouts when I was young and stupid, and started making it though that fabric I bought it kind of wacky....Ahem. Anway - what difficulty is it rated at?

I'm American, but I live in Italy. Italian women do sew, but it's all done very formally and expensively, and I've never been able to figure it all out, so I get things when I go home for the summer. Even though it looks grey, it doesn't keep the vertical stripes from being rather flattering.

It was rated Average, and I'm not super-experienced, but I didn't find it difficult at all. Also, I had my mother (who's amazing) to pin it on me over and over and over. I must have tried it on thirty times, and that's not exaggerating.
