THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL EVENING DRESS. PERFECT FOR PARTIES
A Butterick pattern
You may be surprised to learn that the beautiful dress below, which I have just made for the Minerva Craft Blogger Network is exactly the same pattern as the one I made previously in Orange Linen. For this version I lengthened the skirt and sleeves and made a tie belt to tie in a bow at the front.
Patterns are expensive and when I have found one I like I feel that I need to get full value out of it by using it again as often as possible.
I vary the design a lot as you can see from the pictures, and I would be surprised if you realised at first that these two very different dresses are from the same pattern! Both are lovely in their own way.
