This is my finished Walk Away Dress (Butterick 4790) for the Vintage Sew Along that I joined. This was my first sew along so I am happy that I completed my project! This was also my first time sewing a vintage pattern.
The bodice part of the dress is a black retro square cotton fabric that I purchased over 12 years ago! It was one the first fabrics I purchased when I bought my Singer.
I really like this full circle skirt & I added a little ruffle trim with a daisy charm on the neckline.
I added waist ties that I made my self. I serged the trim in hot pink for contrast.
I also sewed all the black trim on my 1960's Singer that is always threaded black.
It was a sunny day for a change but was cold!
I like this picture showing mini-me's shadow (taking the photo)
This is a fun dress to wear!

I really enjoyed taking a silent view in this sew along as so many of these ladies are extremely talented and the issues they had with these vintage patterns were way beyond my expertise! I did learn quite a few new techniques and found that I have a new addiction to vintage patterns & soon will be looking for more dress patterns.
