Description

My try at sewing Butterick 5780, a close-fitting, Kate Middleton-inspired something-or-other knockoff featuring sleeve options, a skirt with front pleats, a back zipper, and a bodice with a crazy line that sort of evolves into a collar.

Material Notes

A fairly hefty cotton jersey from Sarah Fabrics in Langley Park, MD. I don’t think it had any stretch fiber in it — just a thick knit.

    Very nice! (I looked at your blog, I like your ‘Pimp Coat’! How about giving the fur a little shave to calm it down a bit? The sewing & fit are super!)
