New Summer/Fall Patterns
Butterick’s latest collection includes fashionable dresses for a variety of people.
Available in Misses’ and Petite sizes, pattern 5780 is suitable on many body shapes. The side front bodice extends around the neck forming a collar and the skirt pleats align with the bodice princess seams creating a flattering, long vertical line. Appropriate for two-way stretch fabrics.
Wear pattern 5783, a convertible dress, six different ways. This dress has long sleeves, a cross-over front, and an elastic waist. What makes it convertible are two extra-long pieces sewn into the side-front seams and then wrapped around the body in unique styles. Approximately 4 yards of jersey fabric creates this versatile look.
An empire waist dress available in Misses’ and Women’s sizes, pattern 5794 has multiple variations. Each pattern view has a shoulder yoke and a waist seam and you choose from three neckline, sleeve, and hem-length options.
A maternity wear ensemble, pattern 5796 includes three fashionable tops, with sleeve variations, and full- or Capri-length pants for the expecting mom. The tops have optional side seam ruching (which helps for progressive size variations) or a front drape that wraps around the front of the body. The pants have an extended waist panel for comfort. Appropriate for two-way stretch jersey or double-knit fabrics.
