The Original Walk Away Dress Butterick 6015
This is the original 'walk-away' dress pattern, not a reproduction. Butterick released this in 1952 and it ended up being the best selling pattern ever. At one point they even shut down production of all their other patterns to fill the demand for #6015. It was called walk-away because one could start it after breakfast and walk-away in it for luncheon.
Quick & Easy One Piece Wrap Dress. Here's the smartest idea of the season . . . a dress that has only back waist and shoulder seams, that has its back wrapped around to the front for a sheath-and-overskirt look. Binding finishes the edges. Wear it for any occasion. Made from just 3 pattern pieces, no facings!
Fabrics - crepe, taffeta, faille, satin, velveteen, shantung, gingham, chambray, cotton prints, linen, pique, cotton broadcloth.
