B5147 Dress Sew Along
Butterick 5147: Misses Petite Jacket, Top, Dress and Skirt
The placement of the grommets were inspired by Maggy London's Grommet Dress, retailing for $98.00 at Nordstrom.
I drew a horizontal line along the circumference of the dress to use as my guide for placing the grommets...
The second row of grommets in the back were spaced farther apart than the front, by then I was exhausted from all the hammering. In my haste to finish this dress my back darts are not even, but seriously it did not break the dress. My right arm still feels like limp noodles...lol Normally, I opt out of the center back zipper when using a knit, but since this was a medium weight knit and not a lot of cross-wise stretch, I played it safe by putting in a zipper. Also I opted out of the back split.
Of course, by now everyone knows how much I love the style line of this dress, totally simple with many possibilities.
Mmmm... a quick swig.... before another pic...mmmm
Ok... time to put the drink down and take a serious photo...
