Sunny Day to All,
I love wrap dresses. I know the summer is getting to an end but I promised myself to sew some dresses that I can wear to work. So, I did just that! I hope I can still rock this dress with some tights during the fall because I love it. Tuesday was my sister's birthday and her favorite color is blue. Happy Birthday Alexandra!!!! So I thought I would rock the blue on that day. She didn't get to see the dress since she is in Haiti, but I know she will love this post. I wore it to work and snapped a few pictures before getting on the road. Thanks Hubby! I used Butterick 6054 to achieve this look. I paired it with my Michael Antonio heels and some pearls. Pearls always seal the deal. Enjoy the pictures.
About the Pattern
Butterick 6054 was easy but I had to unstitch the pleats in the front, walk away from it and then take my time to do it over. I am keeping it real with you guys. I love small details however, they can be nerve racking at times. Don't let this stop you! I had to stop, walk away and come back the next day just for the pleats and I was just fine after trying a second time. I am saying this to explain that even I, can walk away from a piece but determination is what will help one get better at it.
I consider B6054 an intermediate level pattern just because of the pleats. I cut a size 12 and it was very comfortable for me. The instructions were clear. I just had issues with the pleats, that's all. I used a light weight knit fabric and it was perfect. I did not make any alterations to the dress. I will definitely make this dress again. A lady can never have too many wrap dresses. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Sewing to You!
