Butterick 6214

this is the second time i have written this post the first time i posted it, i received txt congratulating me on my post then it disappeared into the posting black hole.


I was a bit concerned about the scalloped neckline as the pattern was a size too large, although i knew i could slash the pattern the scallops would be a challenge.

I decided to use my printer scanner, i worked out the ratio i needed to reduce it by, and hey presto.


the only change i made between this top and the one the actual dress is that i lengthened it by 1/2 inch.

this dress looks beautiful but it is an impractical dress to wear as you will see in the last photo

here are some detail shots



and here is the shot you’ve been waiting for
