Butterick Beauties

Hey yall!….Last night I started on my dress and finished it sometime early this morning…at like 2 am this morning…I never worry about the time though, as long as I’m sewing….I opted to whip up another dress from one of my new patterns I ordered from Butterick’s new line of patterns….I whipped up the See & Sew B5871 View A….It came together pretty easily just like the pattern indicated…My Mother used to like sewing with Butterick Patterns too and now I know why…they are easy to understand and can be modified easily…Which is great for me because I almost never make the pattern how its written…I always put my own spin on em’….this dress is no exception…I used a seersucker type fabric that has a slight stretch…the pattern called for a knit fabric but I just didn’t see this pattern looking Spring-y using a knit…I like the way it came out; maybe I will try a printed knit on View B….Well let me share the photos now so I can get back in my sewing room…maybe I can whip up something else today!….;)

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
