Butterick B6843 Pattern Retro Shirtdress With Sash – Vintage Sewing
There is a story behind every pattern. A woman from Idaho sent me a picture of a 1947 dress and said she wanted that design. McCall’s loved it and said it would be great as a Palmer/Pletsch pattern since I could include our alteration lines on the tissue and fit throughout the guide and this dress requires good fit!! It may be attractive to young sewers as well and will introduce those busty hour-glass figures to fit. (This pattern was previously McCall’s M6891)
