Description

I just fell in love with this simple new Butterick pattern 6016. View B is what caught my eye, the skirt on this dress is just the right amount of the high low look. Fully lined so there’s just a hint of the lower back hem to see the contrast lining. Great flattering fit, plan to wear it now with a cardigan & tights. Really easy with only 4 pattern pieces. I will be making this dress again & again. It’s tough to see just how cute this dress is in the pictures.

    Im using this pattern, I’m a novice at this and wonder why the front bodice is in two pieces, do you think it could be adapted to cut on the fold ? I love yours ,beautiful fabric.

      I have no idea why they do a seam on the front bodice, I’ve seen this on several patterns recently. You could cut the bodice on the fold, just remember to take into account the 5/8 seam allowance when cutting on the fold.

    I love you pick of fabric. This is pretty. Your right the classic style will work with a cardigan & tights. Good eye!

    Nice little dress! I love the simple, clean lines of this pattern. I may have to pick up this pattern as well as it makes up a great little easy to wear dress. Enjoy it!
