Shift dress in Navy/Maroon striped wool fabric, based on Butterick B5235. I decided to reverse the vertical darts on the front and back to add a slight twist and tacked each dart in place using a tiny button. This was a lovely pattern to work with, producing a simple but elegant result. I fully lined the dress and inserted an invisible zip – slightly challenging to keep the stripes perfectly matched throughout. I intend to make the jacket – at some point but not to match this dress. I am very pleased with the finished result and the fit and will definitely use this pattern again.
Beautiful ex designer, wool suiting fabric from Ditto Fabrics (my favourite online supplier).
