Green polka dots retro dress - Butterick 5747

Butterick 5747
Here is my second try at this pattern in a very very beautiful green jacquard. My 1st dress with this pattern was Miss Fancy Hair Dress.

My envelop had 8-16, but I there is a 16-24 available as well. I cut mostly 12, going to 10 at the bust and 14 at the waist.  I only added a little more ease at the waist and took 2" out of its length.

I have 2 now so I don't know if I will sew it again. I have so many other patterns I want to try.  On the other hand I want to try some color blocking for it as well. It is not a hard dress if you find the right fit.The pattern does have the final measurements so it should not be hard to decide what size you need. It  was a rather fast dress for me the second time around. With the fabric cut 2 days before sewing, I was able to finish it in one of my free days without sweating to hard and taking rather long breaks to play with my son.
