Butterick 8154, made out of nice brocade.
This pattern went together very well, even with having to reduce the darts a lot to fit my modern figure. It helps to wear the dress over a girdle or corselette, even a modern one. I wore this to a ladies' luncheon, and paired it with vintage gloves, a vintage fur hat, and satin shoes from Payless.
