Butterick 5252 from 1991 pattern for wedding or formal gown and petticoat for sizes 12-14-16. The dress can be made ankle, evening, or floor length and features stay with bias sections;, fitted, lined, shaped bodice with princess seams and dropped, pointed waist. The skirt is flared with side front seams (no side seams, which gives a smoother silhouette); off-shoulder, pleated "sleeves," and a back zipper. The petticoat has a waistband, back zipper, and attached ruffle, and can be made to match the gown for a full, graceful look. It's a charming and timeless design that would look lovely as a wedding dress or formal gown.
Suitable for fabrics with body, such as peau de soie, taffeta, satin, damask, and even cotton broadcloth. The bodice can be made with lace (or a lace overlay). Suggested fabric for the lining is china silk, although a synthetic lining fabric would work too; for the petticoat, taffeta or lightweight broadcloth.
This original 1991 pattern is uncut and factory folded. The envelope is shopworn and has a tear in it, but the pattern is clean and pristine. It comes to you in an archival acid-free clear sleeve for protected storage.
