What I wore and Whats up Next: B5985

Hey Y'all
I must admit when I find a pattern that's pretty simple to put together, doesn't require a lot of pieces, time or fuss I seem to make it over and over and over again. If you get tons of compliments while wearing it that's always a plus!
One of those patterns for me is V1314. I absolutely love it. I've made this dress 3 times.

This one made in late 2013 and worn to my Company Xmas party in December 2013 and again to church this past Sunday. I LOVE ruching.

This one made in December of 2014 and worn out with the hubby for our Anniversary dinner

This one made in September 2013 worn to a friends "Fabulous and Forty" Party.
Can you tell I love this dress and cant make any promises that I wont make one in 2015..

In sticking with one of my 2015 Sewing goals to sew with more woven fabrics:
Currently on the cutting table is  Butterick 5985 View A. In a pretty blue shimmer cotton sateen

The model photo on the envelope is horrid( in my opinion), the line drawings are better but the lone 2 reviews I saw on PR gave me hope. Lets anticipate a success!

Happy Sewing!


  1. Very nice! I have V1314 sitting in the shopping cart now. I agree the styling on B5985 is horrible. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  2. If it works, work it! You look great in all three versions.


I would love to hear your thoughts. Go!
