Description

My sweet boyfriend gave me a lovely necklace recently, so I decided that I needed a new garment to wear with it and showcase it! I ran out and bought Butterick 6551 pattern and some stretch twill in olive green to whip up this quick dress to wear with it. I added pockets to the simple shirt-dress like pattern and also made a simple sash to give it some shape. Fast, fun and easy to sew and wear-and the perfect neckline to show my new jewelry. Yay!
