Sewing Pattern Review Butterick 4386

Friday, August 30th, 2013

One of my student’s Anna was invited to a wedding and wanted to make a beautiful new dress for the occasion.

She purchased a gorgeous piece of lace and we transformed a simple Butterick dress pattern B4386 into a designer after five!
