Description

Butterick 5815 was an easy project; a quick (sewing time one hour tops) and fun sew (if you love narrow hems as much as I do). I spent more time mulling over which view to construct. I wanted a dress like view C but I liked the curved hem of the tunic view B. In the end I merged the two and cut a dress length with a curved hem.

    You look lovely! I especially love the sleeves, and the colours. And I guess wearing it exempts you from things like doing the dishes!

      Thank you! No, I will not be washing dishes or attempting any other sleeve dipping activities!
