Butterick B5209- Sew for Victory!


I have so much to do, the very last thing I should be doing is some sewing! But I have been dreaming of sewing this dress for a long time, so indulged myself. As long as I don't make it a habit right?


I feel like I am a fraud if I don't point out every flaw. I will say that I am pretty darn proud of the pattern matching I did right on the waist. As for the rest, I ran out of fabric! Also, I pinned the slit a little higher because it was just a wee bit too low for me.


Also I am proud of myself for making victory rolls in my hair! 
My little girl dreams have come true.
