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. This dress is beautiful! Love the fabric and colors. I just finished showing Stella all the clothes you’ve made and posted on this website. She loves them all and everyone is her favorite.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!
