Another holiday dress, this time a comfy number in viscose jersey. Less than 2 weeks to go now and they’ve just dropped the PCR test needed to get onto the island so that’s a weight off my mind although I appreciate that is such an insignificant concern when you watch the news these days.
This is the Butterick 6051. This pullover dress has several neckline and skirt variations, and a choice between a more fitted wrap bodice (this one) and a looser one. There’s also a shaped front hemline version. Mine is the length to match the amount of fabric I had available.
After much research, reading through many reviews, I took a deep breath went down 2 whole sizes on the bust and hips and 3 sizes on the waist, cutting out the straight size 10!
It fits just right everywhere and with the added bonus of no closures, you just pull it over your head and wiggle through the waistband.
I’m glad I included the tie. It’s just enough to hide lunch 😉
There are so many lovely ones on Instagram. especially the long ones in printed floral viscose jersey.
Next I’m sewing up an easy breezy Charlie Caftan by Closet Core Patterns. Watch this space!
Love, Lucie xx
