Butterick 5394/McCall 5975

I whipped these two pieces up awhile ago.

Fabric used: Grey knit-I have had this fabric in my stash for awhile and it was perfect for this.

Complexity of pattern: Beginner..very easy. I made View C

How long did it take to complete: About 2 hours

Overall Review: This is the second time I have used this pattern. I made View B with orange fleece. The review is in a previous post. It is a really easy pattern to work with and has several options. I love the fringe look. I can see doing one in a red or even a purple.

Fabric used: Burgundy matte jersey-I have had this fabric in my stash for awhile too

Complexity of pattern: I would say advanced beginner but I didn't follow the directions and did my own thing with the dress that was easier. I did not put in a zipper and I made view B with long sleeves.

How long did it take to complete: About 3 hours

Overall Review: This is a very cute pattern. I did find it odd that it called for a zipper being that you are to use some type of knit but I guess depending on the knit, you might need a zipper. I don't think matte jersey has that much stretch and I got the dress on with no problems.

Oh my goodness, both designs are sharp! I am sort of glad that I am a pattern hog because I have both patterns and I want to make both of them.
