Well, not new. New to me. More like, three recent sewn retro reprints! Yay! Anyway, these are some Butterick Retro Reprints I picked up on sale. Two patterns, three dresses. Smiley Definitely recommend for some wardrobe fillers!!

Also, a moment of Victory.

Victory ROLLS!

Which I totally did. All by myself. And only had to redo like twice because they fell like undercooked souffle. Oh yeah. Cheesy














Thank you so much for checking out my work! Enjoy your day!!

I too, am a full-figured woman, and I really like how these dresses are very feminine without letting anything show.

All 3 dresses look lovely on you and very feminine. Will be great for summer weather, and any occasion. Smiley

I really like the red one with the bicycles on you, most becoming! You did a great job on them! (and your hair is fantastic)

Butterick 5748 and 5603. Highly recommended, but make a muslin first.
