Butterick B5953 … finished

After all of the indecision over the buttons, I settled for some plain black ones! So here’s a photo of the dress finished and the nice little godet on the back. I would have used a plain black fabric but I didn’t have enough leftovers so houndstooth it is πŸ™‚

    It looks fabulous and I like the back all one color.

      Thank you! When I think about it, the back is probably better in the houndstooth fabric πŸ™‚

    Great dress, it is certainly well sewn and fitted perfectly. And I love those stockings! A great accessory.

    • ohsewdarling April 11, 2014, 9:15 am

      Thank you! I really did have to shorten it quite a bit for me. I thought the stockings finished it off but I really should have done something with my hair!

    Looks great in that houndstooth! I recently bought this pattern and hope to find time to make it before autumn πŸ™‚

      Thank you πŸ™‚ Oh definitely post a pic once you’re done, it really is a fab pattern!

    I made this pattern, too. Wasn’t it a fun sew? You look fabulous! Great fabric.

    • ohsewdarling April 12, 2014, 12:24 pm

      It was! Im a bit disappointed that I dont have any of it left!

    Hi, new to blogging (would love some followers πŸ˜‰ ). I bought this pattern to wear yo an autumn wedding, fell in love with it straight away!!! I would love to be brave and try different colours though but can’t think of a good combo!?

    • ohsewdarling April 13, 2014, 3:04 pm

      Oh I just couldn’t decide on fabrics either until I wandered round the fabric shop and spotted the houndstooth! Keep an open mind and something might jump out at you! And post a photo when it’s done, i’d love to see it!

  • nat April 13, 2014, 5:21 pm

    That’s a good idea thanks πŸ™‚ I’ll fish this post out again when I’m done!

  • Smee April 21, 2014, 8:24 am

    I have this pattern and have been dying to make it. I love how yours turned out!
