I made this dress from vintage 1960's Butterick 5307.  I bought it at one of those antique malls. Normally, I spend less than a dollar on a pattern.  But I loved this pattern, so I made a $3 splurge! I loved the shape of the dress as well as the seams down the front. What sold me was: sleeves! and the tab at the neck.  I decided not to attach a button at the neck tab. Instead, I'm currently wearing it with a brooch and I think I'm going to make pins out of a few large buttons so that I'm not stuck with one button.

You can read my full pattern review at my blog with more pictures: http://jordannhall.blogspot.com/2012/01/butterick-5307-vintage.html

That looks splendid, a very tidy job.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

That's a great silhouette on you! I personally believe in splurging on things I know I'll love, so what's three dollars between Craftsters? Tongue

Well, I'm big on hoarding collecting. So, I have more vintage patterns than I know what to do with. However, I kind of have this deal with myself that I can't spend more than a dollar unless the pattern fits me with little or no grading. This one did, and I loved it, so I picked it up. I'm really glad I did, because I love the final product!
