Butterick Retro 5032

April 3, 2011

Today I finished the Butterick Retro 5032 pattern I’d been working on for a while.

I thought I’d make the yellow dress in a bright jewel colour, ala Joan Holloway, for work. I found a purple linen and knew it was meant to be.

I made mine a little shorter than the pattern intended but I’m happy overall. I might wear it to work tomorrow with a black cardigan and black fishnets!

  2. Beeee-u-t-ful! I just pick this pattern up at JoAnnes (my store is closing so I picked it up for $0.25 amongst a multitude of other quarter patterns.) I cannot wait to make it since yours came out so well! Enjoy!

  3. It is a beautiful design. Even if you had this dress in yellow it will look attractive . I personally love yellow color. thanks for the article.
