Sunny Day to All,
I made this dress a few month ago before I went to Haiti in December and never got to wear it. Ha! Ok, I must admit; I brought almost half of my atouchofmémé closet. I brought too many clothes and never got to wear this one. I am at the point where I only want to wear my own garments. I thought about leaving it in my closet in Haiti but thought about the spring coming up and packed it up. So here it goes! I used this sheer fabric that I got from Gstreet Fabric in Rockville, MD and this blue fabric that I also picked up at Gstreet Fabric a long time ago. I used Butterick 6553 . This is definitely a "brunch with the ladies" type of dress. It is very comfortable, not too tight, not too short, definitely the perfect definition of classy. I paired this beautiful dress with my Aldo fushia pumps (click the link for similar look) and some rose gold jewelry. Enjoy these few pics and don't forget to say hello :-).
About the pattern
Butterick 6553 is very easy. I made it even easier by using the bias tape at the end for the sheer fabric. If you are a beginner, use some bias tape for the sheer fabric, it makes it easier. If you picked the right combination, you will enjoy the finish look. I cut size 14 and made view B. I love the longer sheer fabric look in the back. Although there are no zippers, I would classify this dress as intermediate level. Just be patient and follow the instructions and you will have a great dress at the end. By the way, the instructions very easy to follow. If you are a beginner, take your time with the sheer fabric as it can get a little frustrating. Just being honest. :-)
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy sewing to you!!!!
