Butterick B5209 Dress - Restoration of Beauty - Update

Butterick B5209 Dress - Restoration of Beauty - Update.
This is the final details of the beaded gown. I only used the pattern as a guide. I’m really pleased with the outcome. It gave me a lot of pleasure putting it altogether and making it work with an old existing gown. Very rewarding. I hope that this upcoming weekend I have an opportunity to model it. It actually looks better on a body, than on a dressform. The gown has a build in corset and is fully lined.

As for the repairs in my sewing room, I already set up an appointment with my mechanic for tomorrow. Good grief!
