Butterick finally put their winter patterns online. Check them out here. The following are my picks:
Wide necked dresses are so popular right now. I haven't loved any of the patterns with this design element until now. View C is my pick. I think the asymmetrical wide collar is so cute, especially with a pretty pin. Goodness knows I don't need another dress pattern. Oh well, I'll probably buy it anyway...
I'm planning to make some knit tops this winter. (My previous post shows all the knits I bought to make into tops.) So I was super excited to see this pattern. View D is my favorite, with the off-center twist and long sleeves.
Okay, I like it but I'm slightly annoyed at the timing. I just made a ruffle front blouse, and I had to fiddle with the pattern to get the right ruffle and sleeve to fit what was in my mind. And 2 weeks later Butterick comes out with the exact same style. Not that I care if other people have the look, just that this could have come in handy 2 weeks ago when I was making my version! Anywho, I do like view C with the pleated yoke, so will probably buy this one as well.
Here's the dress I'm currently working on:
And here's a new pattern Butterick just came out with:
Look familiar?!! This is the exact same dress!!! So if anyone likes the Vogue, buy the See&Sew Butterick for $2.99 and save yourself a little money.
I'm planning to have my Vogue dress completed tonight and posted tomorrow. That is unless I get stuck in it again and have to cut my way out. I think my zipper is a dud.
