In today's edition of Monday musing I will share my version Butterick pattern 4790. A simple dress, however not for the faint of heart, not for a first dress, stick with the A-line skirt and some tops than gradually incorporate bottoms with tops. Not saying it can't be done, it can.
So without further ado the pictures of this wonderful creation in the making.
