A New Dress - Butterick 5913

Thank you all for your get well messages, today's post is long overdue as I actually finished this dress back in May!

I used some lovely 60s barkcloth that I picked up at a vintage fair recently and made version A.

Do you like my new cropped blouse? It made its debut on Saturday night when I went out dancing but Lola is modelling it today as I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I must say I'm quite pleased with it, this is the first time I've used a pattern block to design my own garment!
