Today's Pattern: Butterick Sewing Pattern 5143 Misses Dress
Yesterday I was so busy listing patterns, I never got a chance to post one here. This is one of the patterns that I posted yesterday. It is Butterick Sewing Pattern 5143 Misses Size 8-16 Halter Neck Sleeveless Sundress Dress . As soon as I saw it I thought it looked familiar and then it dawned on me, it is very much like the halter neck 'Pillowcase Dresses' that have become so popular lately. Everything old is new again for sure. While this isn't an actual pillowcase dress, the lines are similar and the halter neckline is cleanly finished with a better fit than a pillowcase dress would give you. It would make a great sundress or even a dress to wear at the office if you have a jacket or bolero to wear over it. After work take off the jacket and you are ready for the grocery store or a date. That is one of the joys of sewing; depending on fabric choices and embellishments, you can sew up a dress and have it ready for any occasion that you like. Try this pattern or any of the thousands more that we have at our store, Moonwishes Sewing and Crafts.
If you are looking for a particular pattern in our store and can't find it, we have plenty of boxes of patterns that we don't have listed yet and we would be happy to look for the pattern for you. We do need the brand and pattern number and type of garment you are looking for. Pattern companies repeat their pattern numbers about every 8-10 years, which is why even with the brand and number we still need some idea of what we are looking for. We can not however, look for a certain garment pattern without the other information as I can't remember every single pattern that we have tucked away to list. I've gotten to the point that I have a certain amount of senioritis based brain leakage!
