Saturday Special: Butterick 4173

Thought it was time for something a bit fancy to surface in the Saturday Special, so I dug a bit deeper in the pattern stash and came up with this fabulous 1960s shift dress and reversible jacket. The shopkeeper went a bit overboard with their stamp pad (I’m not that surprised, having been to a shop in the same town where this pattern was bought that had multiple signs referring to firearms and the owner taking matters into their own hands if they came across a shoplifter) but aside from that it looks like it’s never been used. I do love the bow detail and the kimono-style sleeves. I’m thinking it would look stunning in a natural/off-white colour with an indigo Japanese print for the jacket lining. Or red, of course.
