This turned out absolutely beautiful!  I am making the same dress(not for a wedding) in a seafoamy green shantung. I was having a hard time understanding how they are explaining how to make the button hole. Any tips?

IKWYM re the buttonholes, I had a play with scrap making them the way described (bound self fabric iirc), but my friend preferred the machine buttonholes.
I figured the instructions probably were for the self fabric kind since it's a vintage pattern, and maybe most people in the 50's didn't have a onestep buttonhole function on their home sewing machines, so that style made more sense when the pattern was written. (I'm totally guessing!)
I used a round end buttonhole, and it worked well.
I do like the look of the self fabric buttonholes though.
But I'd say if you are struggling with them, that ime ordinary buttonholes work just as well.

Your fabric sounds divine, I hope you'll post the finished dress to Craftster.

Love Jeanette

This dress is fantastic. The color is dreamy. So elegant and finally not at all typical. You did great!!! Roll Eyes
