Spring Fling

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Retro Butterick #B5214 Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? The fit is flawless! This dress has couture elements, underlining, hand sewn rolled hems, and special weighted hem treatment. The jacket has every seam either encased in bias binding or french seamed. I had to alter the pattern to make it like this, and was quite pleased with my work. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Taking the time to mark seam allowances and darts very carefully helped to give great fit, without any struggles. The pattern is relatively straight forward, and easily altered. I think it would make a great beginner project.

What you will need

  • Easter colored cotton polka dot print. And jacket is a cotton eyelet.
