80s Long Sleeve Wrap Dress Sewing Pattern Butterick 5262
Misses' Dress -- Dress in below mid-knee length with waistline has fitted bodice, oval neckline, asymmetrical front closing, attached self ties, slightly gathered skirt, pockets in side seams, full length sleeves gathered into narrow buttoned cuffs, and topstitch trim.
Size: 12, Bust 34
Date on Envelope: None, but it was found with others from the late 1970s and early 1980s. The style of the dress plus her hairstyle seem more 1980s than 1970s, but this pattern is certainly from the late 70s or early 80s.
Condition: Uncut (Please see the pictures for envelope detail. I never claim the pattern to be perfect or mint. They've all got character, one way or another.)
Enlarge the picture of the back of the pattern for fabric details and size measurements.
Sometimes it's far more fun to sew something from another time.
Sometimes it's even more fun to update it or make it a little differently to suit your taste.
And sometimes the only thing you can do with that totally awesome vintage yardage you have is build an equally awesome vintage garment. But the only way to make it look "right" is to use a pattern it was meant to be used with back in the day.
In any case, I hope you have "just the right fabric" to use with this pattern.
Always contact me if you have questions. I love to talk sewing and patterns and vintage...and a bunch of other stuff, too!

I ship via First Class US Postal Service within 2 business days of your payment clearing (Weekends and holidays excluded...and sometimes a few other days, too. If I need more than 2 business days, I'll mention it in my shop announcement. It's rare, but sometimes I might need a third or fourth day.).
International buyers are responsible for any customs fees or taxes.
Delivery of International shipments takes from 4 days to 4 weeks, sometimes even longer. The average is about 2 weeks, but it's inconsistent and I have no control over the Postal system of my country or that of my customers'. The US Postal Service is fairly consistent within the USA in that most packages will arrive within 3-5 days. But there are exceptions to that range as well. I do my best to get your order out the door within a day or two. After that, it's in the hands of the postal service and I always hope for speedy delivery.
I accept Paypal.
I want everyone to be happy with what they receive. Please contact me within 30 days of receiving your order if that's not the case.
Even though I check every vintage pattern before I list it, I'm human, I make mistakes. I've got hundreds of awesome patterns to list and I might be really excited and anxious to get to the next one and not notice that the 24th piece of 30 is missing from the envelope. Or perhaps it looked like 2 pieces were stuck together when it was only the one big piece.
Should you receive an incomplete pattern, accept my apologies and please contact me for options on how to fix the situation.
I get patterns from different sources, sort the ones I want to build for myself and then list the others here. They're in as-found condition. In order to keep my prices so low, I'm not as thorough as someone who charges twice or plenty more for the same pattern, however, I'm quite willing to rectify the situation if you are not satisfied with what arrives in your mailbox.
And as always, please ask questions. I'm usually available online from about 9AM to 5PM PST weekdays. Sometimes earlier and later, too. I'm a one-woman show and this is my livelihood...or at least what I'd rather be doing instead of everything else! :)
I was searching everywhere for ribbon clamps that were solid, & found your shop with the exact size I needed. Ribbon clamps arrived in record time, 11 days to get to Australia. Thank you
You're wickedly wonderful! Thanks so much for the fast delivery and awesome items. These are beautiful and will add so much class to all my projects.
Pure perfection every time! :)
