Butterick 5461

Hey everyone,
this is my first post since the blog has moved to wesewretro
Some weeks ago I finished a dress Butterick 5461. I am quite satisfied with the result. I did a draft before sewing it. While sewing it, I bought a new serger and I could experiment it for the first time. The result is quite professional.

Here it is:

About the author: Paris, is Fashion, Luxury, Haute-Couture, culture and museums… and this is where I am living (Happy me :-). This environment probably gave me desire to get myself more familiar with “couture”. The true story: In 2006 I did realise that I didnt even know how to sew a button (shame on me), so I’ve started taking lessons. After serveral weeks, I couldn’t wait to go to my sewing sessions and I bought my first sewing machine… I find it very relaxing in that crazy working life I have. Creating is escaping the world and offers passion. Creating is something very rewarding.

    Love the shape and the darts at the waist. I love the way it pleats from the tops of the shoulders too. Very nice!
