I like to make a new dress for Thanksgiving. It has to be a simple sewing project because it is a busy time of the year. I bought this textured double knit from Tissus Mode De l’Orme in Granby, QC last summer. It was a remnant so I was limited in what I could sew with it. I enjoy the challenge of trying to find a pattern for a specific length of fabric.
While going through my patterns I came across Butterick 5950 which is now out of print. I purchased the pattern to make view A but never got around to it. My remnant was big enough to make view C.
I omitted the zipper. This dress goes easily on and off over my head. I lengthened the bodice by 1″. I normally have to do this. I also lengthened the skirt by 1″.
This dress was not part of my sewing plans. I’ve been so focused on sewing for our vacation next year that I overlooked my immediate “needs”.
My fashion photographer and I ran outside for a quick photo shoot during a break in the food prep. I hope that those celebrating had a Happy Thanksgiving.
