This week I am reviewing Butterick 5749.
Partially lined dress has bias front pleated bodice, bias midriff, slightly shaped front hemline, invisible side zipper
I made size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, these instructions are simple and easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
1. I like the cowl neckline and the facing attached to the lining that looks as if you are wearing a cami
2. I like the gathered midriff
3. I like the one sided gathers on the skirt portion of the dress
4. The fitted bodice and full skirt silhouette.
I close cut on the armholes
Fabric Used: ITY jersey (see above link)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't use a zipper.
I added 2.5 inches of length to the pattern
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will not make it again but I highly recommended it.
