My first unprinted pattern...

Over the years I have collected hundreds of vintage sewing patterns, however I have always been a little scared of those unprinted patterns...well, not anymore!

I offer you "Butterick 2964" - 1960s I think.

I used lovely spotty linen from my fave fabric store "Joy's" - my man calls it the "twister" in the board game.

I don't know why I was so worried about unprinted patterns, because this one was really easy.  I know it was an easy design, but I didn't want to make it hard for myself.

I am going to tackle more unprinted patterns as I have started collecting old "Australian Home Journal" patterns.  This dress was very comfy to wear - it was quite warm today - and I received lots of positive comments about it, which is always nice :-)


  1. I think this is a fabulous dress - I also think its like Twister. I have only made one garment from an unprinted pattern, but like you I chose an easy style. I think the most important thing was to take time laying it out and making sure I understood all the instructions. Well done :-)

  2. This dress pattern make jung. It suits you:)
