My daughter made Butterick Retro '52 pattern 4918 for the winter formal at her school.  Here she is with her brother before the dance.

I helped with cutting and pinning, but she did all of the sewing including the intimidating (to me) zipper.  (I sewed the wrap though... she spent two hours doing her friends hair, so she didn't have time.) 

Her friends said she should make the dress mauve like on the pattern envelope, but she's so pale we were afraid she'd really look washed out. 

Thumbnails if you're interested in how much fabric went into the skirt.  (yes, she was being silly and wearing a tutu over her jeans)

before gathering

And just 'cause you might want to see her silly extra stays mustache...
