Today’s Pattern Story: Butterick 3526

by Erin on March 15, 2013

The grass is always greener.


Yellow Dress: I wonder what it’s like in there. In the capsule.

White Dress: She looks so vibrant. So alive. So … three-dimensional. It must be wonderful, to be able to feel like that.

Black-and-White Dress: When I get out, I’m definitely going to eat the yellow one first.

Laughing out loud in my cube, causing a stir amongst the other residents

What I think the black and white dress is saying:

“Oh, you wait. When I get out, darling, those shoes are mine…”

Back in the days when girls couldn’t afford to buy real dresses, they coveted fashion patterns as if those were the real thing. I had a shock of recognition when I saw this pattern–at one time it was my favorite, the one I dreamed of sewing up and wearing. I was happy to see that it’s stayed as young and cute as ever, unlike myself!

Black-and-white: As soon as I get out, I’m telling Elizabeth Montgomery she’s been cloned.

hey gals,
hard to believe but i actually made this dress in 8th grade. it was a shocking pink solid cotton . the scalloped collar and double -bodice and skirt darts were a stretch for me but ….. i wore it !
then a couple of months later my friend cathy (older and more well endowed) wore it and the closely trimmed darts popped open at the freshman dance …

Brutal score! The yellow dress with that collar is cool.
