I wanted instant gratification and I wanted a new garment to wear to work today, so I thought, knit dress, plus, I don't know about you, but I just have those type of days where I want something comfy cozy to wear. I couldn't think of another dress to try this with except Butterick 5147.
This time I traced it out in a size 12, because I was working with a knit and drafted short sleeves to go with it since it's getting cooler outside. If you want to try this, you can take short sleeves from another pattern or try drafting some yourself. I'd say it was an easy project all the way around and I was able to work it up on about an hour or so and it fit right out the box. Now in hearing about the armhole area being cut a little to low, I did add about an 1" to the lower area when tracing the armhole out and then graded back to the 12 going up to the shoulder area. I definitely see more of these in my future with different types of sleeves and necklines.
I'm already planning another one with a matching sweater jacket I'm going to design to go with it. Wish me luck, I hope it turns out.
By the way, thank you all for all the lovely well wishes from my last post. Have a great night. I off to go finish dinner and get some crafting done.
