Simple Yet Satisfying!!!!!! - Butterick 5527
What else can I say? This dress was soooo simple to make and with great reward. I used a sweater knit that I found in Virginia's stash and it turned out GREAT! It's cute AND comfortable. I wore this to church yesterday and got lots of compliments! Although I must admit, instead of this wedge boot (which I should probably part with NOW), I wore a brown Nine West, just below the knee, boot with about a 4" heel. I didn't dare wear these boots with the dress and much less to church, they are....as my high school students would say..."HIT" For Real - LOL!. However, this is the style of boot I'll wear.....as soon as I find them! I just love them but am afraid I've worn them out completely. Got these at JCPenney Outlet in Martinsville, VA a few years back. Anyway.......
REALLY liked the print and the feel of the fabric. When I say tubular, I mean it was folded lengthwise and the selvage edges opposite the fold was sewn together, the end selvage edges were open forming sort of a tube. This was my first experience with this type of fabric, I love it! Already I am thinking about the next project with a sweater knit,. I think it gives the effect of a knitted garment without the actual knit work! I know those wrinkles were not there when I put that dress on - lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
