Butterick Button Down Skirt

October 10, 2007

Finally an introduction and a finished project! it’s taken me so long because I rarely make anything for myself these days. I’m Claire, and I live and sew in Sydney.
So here is my finished button down skirt, made from vintage Butterick pattern 5930, and vintage brushed cotton that I bought at the Op Shop this week. I will be making this skirt again, because as is always the case, the next time the pattern should make more sense!
  1. I like the way your skirt turned out. That fabric is really nice (though not something I would wear, I tend to go for bright colors). It looks better than I would have thought from the pattern envelope.

    But those pattern illustrations have some problems. Like, what’s with the long skirt over slacks?

  2. Wow, it looks much nice than the pattern. I have a button-up-the front (or is it down?)pattern that I have been wanting to try, and now that I have seen yours, I will do it for sure. I love the colors, so Autumn-y.

  3. I really really like that skirt. I am a bit of a skirt freak and am always looking for yet another version. Yours looks great, you did a fab job. 🙂

  4. That pattern is killer. I love the colours of it – and the shape of it is really flattering. The buttons were a nice choice!
