Butterick Summer/Fall Preview 2012

27 Jun

After I was surprisingly impressed with Butterick’s Early Summer offerings, I was looking forward to their new patterns.  I didn’t like as many patterns, but I still think they have some good ones!

I really love the look of this dress in white.  The black version they have the model wearing is no where near as stellar as this illustration.  It does make me wonder if the illustration just makes the garment look better.  Ever looked at a pattern illustration and had it come out nothing like it?  Yeah, me too.  Although I think with this one it is the definition of the pleats that I’m in to, which should stand out more in a lighter colored fabric.

Call me a sucker for bows. and pockets.  I just couldn’t resist a dress that offered both.

Oh yeah, make love to the camera Misses’ Dress.  This dress has a cowl neck, but also bust seams, which should make shaping around ample (or not so ample) bosoms a breeze.
