The Hundred Dresses: Day 75

by Erin on August 16, 2013

This is another Butterick 6820, a full Butterick 6820, much more recent than Wednesday’s.

It is a really fun dress, isn’t it?

I love the combination of mustard and red (this is some fabric I bought in Japan):

The collar turned out okay, not great:

The sleeves:

The biggest problem with this dress is that the sleeve wings make it difficult to throw a cardigan on over it — you get lumpy uncomfortable bunching right at the bicep.

The pockets are HUGE:

I did another side-placket zipper with this one, mostly because I didn’t have a red invisible zipper handy:

Here’s the back:

I suppose now that I’ve made two bird-themed Butterick 6820s I should be on the lookout for one more birdish fabric to use, right? Since good things come in threes?
