Spring Has Sprung!

I decided that I will start to sew using some spring colours in the hopes that this will bring Spring here faster.  I have put together the bodice of Butterick 5556 and the skirt of  Vogue 8328.  I created a similar Mini Dress, here. Changing the collar style.

I used a medium weight cotton material.  I didn't need to make any further alterations to the pattern.  I shortened the skirt about 6" and created a 2" hem.  I pleated the skirt slightly different this time.  I am thinking about creating a fabric covered belt for this dress.  I know that I might have to wait a bit to wear the dress but I wanted to post the finished project.  I will do a post on HOW I WORE IT, once the weather gets better.

Stay Tuned!


  1. Cute! I hope it works because I am so over winter!!!!

  2. Love the brightness and wowza pattern! This will make the daffodils take notice.
