Butterick 5672 – Knit Dress for Fall

IMG_5933

It’s starting to feel like fall here on the Central Coast of California. It is still warm during the day but nights are cooling down. I have not switched over to sewing “warm” clothes because I still want some new work clothes for this time of the year.

I’ve had Butterick 5672 in my pattern stash for a few years. I would take it out every once in a while and try to find fabric that would inspire me to sew it up. I purchased this rayon-Lycra at Tissus mode de l’Orme in Granby, QC last Spring.  While planning my fall wardrobe I was finally inspired to make this dress when I came across this fabric. It was originally going to be a top but I’m glad I decided on a dress.

The dress is lined which I like to do even when a pattern doesn’t call for it. It was a bonus that this pattern included the pattern pieces for the lining. I used swimsuit lining to line the dress.

I omitted the side zipper. My fabric had enough stretch to slip on and off without the zipper. I also added 1″ to the length.

I think that the pleats create a flattering drape and add some interest to this simple design. I’m glad I finally made this pattern.

  1. Gorgeous dress and lovely on you! Love your fabric choice: it could easily be worn as a cocktail/out for dinner dress, given the fabric and sleek fit!

  2. Beautiful. Isn’t it great when a pattern and a fabric come together? The pleats are very flattering and add interest. Another pattern to bookmark!
