Butterick 5930 Shawl-Collared Dress

Threads #202, April/May 2019

Butterick 5930 is a vintage-inspired, feminine dress with several style options. All views include a fitted, fully lined bodice with a seam at the natural waist, mock crossover front, detachable dickey, center-back zipper closure, princess seams, and front and back low V-necklines. Views A and B feature a flared skirt with side seam pockets; view A is sleeveless with a contrast shawl collar, and view B has short sleeves and a shawl collar in the same fabric as the body. View C is sleeveless with a semifitted straight skirt with a left side-front slit and notched shawl collar. Though the pattern is marked “easy” on Butterick’s website, our seamstress suggests the bodice construction be marked “intermediate.” Select cotton lawn, silk georgette, crepe, and sateen.

We sewed this lovely dress in view C, made with premium cotton courtesy of Art Gallery Fabrics.
