The Hundred Dresses: Day 75

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?

  1. a reverse dolman sleeve. some strange, but elegant, combination of wrap and cardigan to give space to your sleeve wings.

    sleeve wings. birds. yes.

    • Oh my, I was just going to ask what this type of sleeve was called! It’s the kind that really suits me best. Cap sleeves are vile! Lol how is it ‘reverse’? Sorry, I’m new to this!
