Plum Aztec Dress – PinTucks Rocks

Hey Fashionistas,

This is the dress I wore for my company’s annual picnic. I’ve been co-chair for two years and assisted with the coordination. For 2014 I took on the chair position in the committee. I pulled together a fantastic team of genius thinkers and we had one of the best events I could have possibly imagined.

Below is my review of Butterick B5559

Did it look like the
photo/drawing on the pattern envelope ? 
Yes

Were the instructions
easy to follow?
Yes the instructions were
very easy to follow.

What did you
particularly like or dislike about the pattern? 
I love the details of this pattern, pin tucks
rock. They give such nice dimension and depth to the structure and overall look
of a garment.

Pattern alterations or
any design changes you made: 
I did take about 1.5 inches of the sides to get my desired fit

Would you sew it
again? 
Yes, I would like to
try on a solid color fabric.

Would you recommend it
to others? 
YES.

Sorry about the go-funny eye in the photo below, not sure what I was trying to do. But it was not the most flattering pose 🙂
