I really liked several of the new Butterick Patterns.
Butterick 6019 – This is a Patterns by Gertie (Gretchen Hirsch) design. She was inspired by Alfred Shaheen’s 1950’s designs and on her blog you can see some photos of Shaheen’s dresses. I’m going on a family trip to Hawaii later this year and this might be a fun dress to make.
Butterick 6020 – What I like most about this ivy + blu shirtwaist dress is the the stitched pleating on the waistline. I like full skirts but I don’t like the bulk created by gathered skirts.
Butterick 6014 – Like the previous pattern, I dig the pleating around the waistline. The pleated asymmetric peplum is also a nice change, and since its a knit dress it looks easy to wear and comfy.
Butterick 6010 – Because who doesn’t need a strapless romper/jumpsuit???
