Butterick 5672: Highly Recommended by nicegirl!By DianeSev on 10/17/11 3:04 PM

Today we're featuring Butterick: 5672 (Misses' Dress) as reviewed by nicegirl.

Butterick 5672

nicegirl made this dress for about $12 from a rayon knit she bought for $5/yard. And she sewed it up quickly, omitting the zipper and lining: it only took her 4 1/2 hours!

She used the pattern pieces to make adjustments by cutting a size 8 at the bust and shoulders, a size 10 at the waist, and a size 12 at the hip. She also ended up taking the dress in by two inches from the armscye to the high hip.

She mixed cutting grains to adapt to her fabric by following the marked bias grainline on the front of the skirt and the straight grainline on all other pieces.

To skirt fit issues, she assembled the dress in panels and then sewed the full length vertical seams. After that, adjustments were easy to make.

She likes the side pleats because they add a bit of style and tummy disguise. The natural waist wins with her too. She is definitely a fan of the pattern and finds it simple but flattering. She plans to make it again in a sleeved version for Fall and Winter.

Highly recommended! Read nicegirl's review.

Thanks, nicegirl! photo
