As one of the many dresses I am making for summer I made Butterick 6206 View A for the bodice and the skirt that goes with views B, C, and D. I like the high low version on View A, but wanted to show off the print on this fabric. The I may make the high low version in another fabric, considering how easy this dress was to make. I think it took about an hour to complete.
I have had this pattern for a few years and wanted a new dress to wear to a Happy Hour event with some of my closet friends/ family. One of our ladies have nicknamed our group of ladies FRAMILY! I love it because that’s what they are FRAMILY!!! These ladies are the best.
The fabric I used was purchased at Journal’s in Los Angeles, Ca. I stop in Los Angeles at least 2 times a year to fabric shop, usually April for my birthday month and September, if I visit Southern California for my wedding anniversary.
Pattern Description: Misses’ Petite Pullover Maxi Dresses and Belt
Pattern Sizing: 6- 14, I cut a size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it looked exactly like the pattern cover.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Instructions were super easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the different variations of the bodice options. It allows you to make multiple dresses with the same pattern, but they look different.
Fabric Used: ITY Knit from Journal’s Fabric in Los Angeles, Ca
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Cut off 6″ from the bottom to accommodate my height
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I plan on sewing this one again, but first I am going to go through my to make list and do some of those projects first.
Conclusion: Love this dress and I like how the pattern on the fabric was placed to make it flow.
