Butterick 2137

I had a super quick turn around with this recent dress project:

I chose version A, sans collar, and used a slightly stretchy plaid fabric that I recently inherited, I had just enough width to panel the body pieces.

No major issues, just it just needs perhaps a little more work to fit the back better – I had to fit while I wore this one!

It’s not quite right across the shoulder/upper back area, and a bit close around the waist… but I love it and enjoy wearing it, so will let that slide!  Bring on cooler months!

Ps, this is the next version of this dress (hopefully ready for my husbands exhibition opening tomorrow… if I can just get off the computer while he hangs out with the kids!):

Of course, there’s a little more over on my blog, mermaidspurse.org.nz.

  • Very nice. Love how quickly some of those patterns go together.

  • That looks great on you!! Good job!

  • That looks great! I have that pattern and was going to do the same, version A without the collar. Great idea to use plaid, it suits it perfectly. Now I’m on the lookout for some great plaid! What a fabulous classic style for the cooler months.

  • Very pretty dress!! I saw that pattern long time ago and it has been in my wish list for so long!
