Butterick 5672

I've been too busy sewing to post!
One frock I've made is Butterick 5672

The fabric is a tweedy wool blend knit, with about 30% stretch across the grain. Not enough stretch for this dress, so I did put the zip in. I went up a size due to my fabric not being stretchy enough, but the pleats are pulling a little too much so it's probably still a skootch too small. Still it's comfy and may become a tripfit once I've road tested it.

Excellent fit on this dress - and cute brooch as well. Hopefully it is 'trip-fit-able'...

I think this is the perfect knit dress and I need to add this pattern to my collection. It's lovely in the fabric you've used. You will be able to get all sorts of looks from this one dress. Fantastic!
