Butterick 6937 - Vintage Dress! :D

This is the third vintage dress I made. It's Vintage Butterick 6937. It has a sweetheart neckline, and a half circle skirt. It is really pretty! I definitely plan to make this one again! It's great for showcasing a fun fabric. This fabric has tiny little hearts, but they look like little flowers until you get closer. I love vintage patterns! I added the ruffle on the bottom because I didn't think it was long enough. Then it needed a little something extra so I added the sash. When I make this pattern again, I think I'll cut it a little longer (actually I just trimmed too much off, it was long enough in the first place) and I will use a lighter weight interfacing for the bodice facing. It is a little too stiff. I'm so excited about spring now! :D
