#TBT DIY White Pique Dress + Pattern Review
Hi Darlings! This is one of my favorite #DIY #Throwbacks that I have ever made. It is such a classy, fresh looking dress. I used a white pique fabric found HERE and they have a ton of colors! The dress pattern is a Maggy London for Butterick
Pattern Review and Links below…
Pattern Description: Butterick 6053 Lined dress has bias neck and sleeve binding, princess seams, fitted bodice, midriff, side pockets, hem band (cut on crosswise grain), cap sleeves and exposed back zipper. Top stitching. Separate pattern pieces included for A/B, C, D cup sizes.
Fabric Used: I used a White Bermuda Pique HERE
Pattern Sizing: I cut the size 8 and graded down the entire bodice. I also used the pieces for Cup A/B
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes, I think it does. Were the instructions easy to follow? They are easy and clear. There are a lot of pieces to cut (19 total) and it is a bit time consuming but well worth it.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the shape of the dress and the style.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any changes aside from the fitting of the bodice but I did skip the top stitching because my fabric is textured and the top stitching was lost in the texture. If I make it again it will be with a fabric that will highlight the top stitching.
Would you sew it again? Yes, I plan to make another.
Would you recommend it to others? YES, it is a more intermediate pattern only because of the lining, bias binding, etc. but other than the time it takes, it is very clear.
