Butterick 5399 ready to sew

I put away the Vogue dress for now. This Butterick pattern has been on my list of dresses to make; somewhat off and on, meaning I have put it aside to make another item. It is now ready to be sewn. I pin fitted the pattern, made my usual FSA and swayback, as well as a small FBA.

I am using a wool fabric that I acquired from Fabric.com about a year or two ago. I purchased lining fabric from Schoolhouse Fabrics in Floyd, VA awhile back as well. The fabric and lining have been cut out. I just need to set up the serger and sewing machine.

I had to do some housecleaning today as well as work on some projects brought home from the office. So not the sewing weekend I would have liked to have. Yesterday we went to Danville to visit MIL. Next weekend I hope to have more time.

  1. It will be interesting to see this dress unfold especially since its part of that Michelle Obama knock-off pattern!

  2. I had hoped to do a lot of sewing this weekend also. I finally did a little bit tonight, but not nearly what I had wanted to do. I feel your pain!!

  5. Hey, nothing wrong with putting aside a project when you're feeling inspired to do something else!
