Butterick 5211

Am I the only sucker for an easy and quick pattern?

I have a large collection of those patterns, however, constantly finding that they are not as easy and quick as stated on the pattern envelope.  What the pattern predicts will take an hour, often times takes me a few hours and sometimes a few days.

Butterick 5211: Dress with back neck opening with button/thread loop closure, extended shoulders and topstitching detail is one of them.


Simplicity 1277

Simplicity 1277: Amazing fit dress with bust darts, contrasting side panels and various cup sizes.

This wine/cream printed cotton-poly immediately caught my eye as I was making my way to the back of 123 Fabrics in Bklyn. It just appeared to shine brighter than the other printed fabrics standing side by side and trying their darnedest to bid for my attention. The print just dazzled me and knew a cut of it would be coming home with me. Once home with this cut and a few others, I pondered how could I best show case this fabulous print without it being too much. Over a few days and as I played Russian roulette with my patterns, Simplicity 1277 struck me as the one.
