KNITTERS-DELIGHT

FO Butterick 5454



I managed to complete another dress this weekend. This is Butterick 5454. I saw some really great versions on Pattern Review including Zazzie from Quebec City and Rachel aka KnitMachineQueen.

I really like how this turned out! The fluttery sleeves and girlie fabric are just what the Doctor ordered. This was an impromptu purchase from Joann Fabrics last month when I was shopping for a dress I'm making for my Sister-in-Law.

I think it pairs well with my Sears coat purchase that was used during the windy nights on my February cruise to the Caribbean.



I plan on tracing a few of the new Burda patterns from May/2010. I really like Dress 105, 103, 108, 142, & 140....I'll start with tracing 105 and see how far I get....lol

How pretty you look in this new dress! It's so floaty and summery. Great pairing with the jacket as well. Gee, a fuchsia trench would match tons of stuff in my wardrobe. Hmmm...
