Butterick 6464

Butterick 6464 (possibly 1953)

Friends, before I board my plane on Friday, I thought i’d share this lovely old gal that arrived recently. Butterick 6464’s envelope is in a sad and sorry state and desperately needs some archival tape, but the pattern is in a good condition. Sadly the smocking and embroidery transfer is missing but that’s often the case with these old patterns.

The deltor is in a good condition but the paper is becoming brittle…an obvious sign of age.

I particularly like the shaped collar on the dress/daygown.  All versions are a typical raglan sleeve which allows a generosity in size that the set-in sleeve doesn’t give.

And hallelujah it’s complete 🙂
