Everyday red dress

November 1, 2013

Hey fellow stitchers!

For the past few months I’ve had the goal to make more everyday garments. I admit it started out kind of boring, but opening my cupboard doors & being able to actually pick something out to wear (that fits me!) has been incredibly motivating! One of my star patterns has been Butterick 2779, a 60’s (?) a-line skirt that I inherited from an aunt. I love this pattern because it’s super simple with only 4 pieces (including the waist band), 4 darts, and really flattering. I had to do a small FBA (full booty adjustment), but I think anyone with a more proportional badonkadonk would have to make minimal alterations, if any.

 

 

I teamed the skirt up with a bodice sloper I’ve been working on & used the most lovely vintage medium-weight cotton that was gifted to me by the darling Sophie.
