"The Knit Dress Alternative"
I don't want to sound ungrateful, knit dresses have been good to me.
Right now, I need less of them but I still want the ease of wear and versatility.
I decided to try out Butterick 5600.
When I saw this fabric at joanns, I remember holding it like "the best kept secret" until
I got to the cutting counter.
The Fabric itself is a cotton that is dyed to look like a straw color linen, the white motif is the original color of the fabric. Its light but not opaque, so you get the look of linen without the wrinkles.
You know I love my belts, but I did go back and forth with the idea of adding the elastic tie belt and casing on the waistline.
I decided to leave it out.
I feel like this look is very trendy right now so I figure if I kept it simple, it will stay longer in my closet.
I like that its on the fringe of being "safari style" with the sleeves and color but without the pockets. This Dress is Short, I added an inch more than the original length.
