Pattern Review: Butterick 5522 Misses’ Dress

Article Image

Style Tip: This design lends itself to fun treatments, such as color blocking or decorative zippers with metal or jeweled teeth.

Butterick 5522

This close-fitting, A-line pullover sheath has beautiful, three-quarter, bell-shaped sleeves with interesting curved insets and a center back exposed zipper. The sleeve’s delightfully challenging five pattern pieces adjoin inside and outside curves and offer a chance to flaunt your seaming skills. For accurate results, our tester recommends adding notches to keep your seams properly aligned. Additionally, after the seams are staystitched, they should be clipped, pinned, and hand-basted prior to sewing. Lightweight knits are recommended due to the neck finishing method and the multiple seams on the sleeves.

(Sized Misses’ 8-24 for busts 31.5-46 in. and hips 33.5-48 in.)

Style Tip: This design lends itself to fun treatments, such as color blocking or decorative zippers with metal or jeweled teeth.
