Green linen retro Butterick – love it

butterick5813greenlinendressI am very pleased with my new teal linen dress made using the Retro Butterick pattern – I managed to find the perfect tortoiseshell buckle from my stash of lovely buttoney bits which sets the dress off beautifully I think.  The pattern is a little tricky at the point where you have to insert the waist panel into a gathered bodice piece but given profuse tacking, a cup of tea and giving myself a good talking to it ended up going in like a dream.  Other scrumptious design features are the triple dart on the inside sleeve making elbow bending divinely comfortable.
