Butterick 5606 Original Version

Thought I'd share how B5606 fit and a few variations of it. There is a lot of fabric to deal with and pulling & tugging to make sure there is no bunching of the ties. I did finish the armhole and neckline, but as of yet have not finished the hem.

Does the background mean that you set the dress on fire or that the dress is too hot to handle?! *LOL*

You look wonderful in this very versatile dress. Bravo!

Awesome! You are wearing the heck out of that dress.

Sheila said...

Thank you for the Fabulous compliments.

After finishing the neckline, armholes and trying the dress on again I realized it would be great for a night on the town. So all that's left to do is hem it.

Another black B5606 will be on the cutting table, but will be the same as the first two dresses, which I prefer for work.
