Butterick 5556 - design possibilities
I've been looking again at butterick 5556 as a winter day dress. And I can wear my petticoat with it for the proper shape. I like both the black and the navy blue. I have some gold buttons or I can use some self cover ones. Will probably reduce the skirt fullness and change from side to back opening. And separate the top from the skirt just coz I worry about washing it. Then change the top to be front fastening.
It should carry me from winter to spring as spring is very like winter in the UK. lol!
