Pattern Review: Butterick 5827 Misses’ Dress

Threads magazine - 168 - Aug./Sept. 2013 Issue

Sewing tip: If your fabric choice requires a lining, it is easy to add to this pattern.

This review was originally featured in Threads #168 (August/September 2013).

Butterick 5827

This sheath dress by Connie Crawford has a funnel-like neckline, a curved yoke with an optional keyhole opening, princess seams, and short sleeves. The yoke adds visual interest and provides a place to use an accent fabric. The dress is fitted through the bust and waist and is loose-fitting at the hips. Our tester found that the XS muslin measures 41 inches at the hips, whereas the pattern lists the finished garment measurement as 55 inches. Our tester believes the number on the pattern is an error. On pattern piece 2 (the yoke back), the size designations are reversed, and where it says XS it should be XL. The cutting line styles are correct. Fitting information is a bonus on the instruction sheets. Suggested fabrics are linen, crepe, jersey, rayon, and special-occasion fabrics with a nice drape. The sample dress is silk/wool jacquard.

(Sized Misses’/Women’s XS-6X [3-44W] for busts 34-68 in. and hips 35-76 in.)

Sewing Tip: If your fabric choice requires a lining, it is easy to add to this pattern.
