Butterick 5211

Butterick 5211- MISSES’ DRESS AND BELT: Dresses A, B, C have back neck opening with button and thread loop closure, extended shoulders and topstitching detail. A: front upper and lower sections. B: self-belt. C: gathered sleeve with elastic casing, length 2" above mid-knee.


Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Very much so.



Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy.



What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I have been on a shift dress kick and wanted to try another one and the neckline and pocket detail hooked me in.



Fabric Used: Rayon/Polyester



Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: With the extended neckline, I did away with the back neck opening & button loop closure. The dress runs big and had to trim off 1" from the side seams. Of course, I realized that after the pocket installation and had to remove them before proceeding for a closer fit. I also tweaked the pockets removing some of the deepness, which appeared elbow deep...lol



Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I doubt I will sew this again, but would recommend it.
