My picks of the new Buttericks

Do I need more patterns? No. Do I love new styles? Heck yeah!!! So here are my picks of the new Butterick spring line:

I love this knit dress, but do I really need another fitted V-neck and flared skirt design? Probably not. But then I don't have anything with elbow-length sleeves. Although do I really like that much volume for sleeves? I guess I'm on the fence about this one.

No indecision about this design. I already have some yellow floral watercolor fabric in my stash that would look perfect. I like view B.

Not that I have anywhere to wear this, but the short red strapless dress on the envelope is super cute, IMO. Especially with that big fabric flower pinned to the bodice.

I've seen these shirts with beads sewn in between tucks like A and B at the mall. They are really neat and unusual. I'll be making A for summer.

Cute blouse. I think view C in an olive green to match an orphan skirt in my closet. That's a fabric in my stash as well.

I love the square neckline with collar on this little summer jacket. I'm thinking either A or C.

What do you people think? Did I miss any of your favorites?

  6. I just checked and Hancocks have a Butterick sale this weekend. I don't know if you have one by you. I just looked at the patterns and I like the shirt dresses (one with button front and another wrap with ruffle). Thanks for the update.

  8. Oh Brangie has been complaining because the press is so interested in their "private life". He feels violated. Maybe if they wouldn't make such a spectacle of themselves (i.e. renting South African countries or buying Villas in France to have their babies) the press wouldn't be so interested. ya think? :P

    Hey, Buttericks go on sale Feb 14 weekend!!

    ps...here's my email: jemimabean at gmail.com
