Knit Maxi Dress - Butterick 6330


I made this dress a couple months, but just now getting it posted.

I also want to make the jacket later in the fall.




















I made a size large, which is bigger than I need.  But the fabric is thin and very stretchy, and I didn't want it to cling too much.  I'm happy with the fit.




Fit alterations I made: added 1 inch to the front bodice length and removed 1 inch from back bodice length, and removed 1 inch from shoulder width.  These are standard alterations for me.



 I bought the fabric from Fabric.com in 2007 and paid $5.00 yard.  It's one of those fabrics that I liked so much that I was hesitant to cut it.  I'm glad to finally use and love the dress.


I really like it with a black cardigan.



And the back



I also used the pattern to make a black knit dress.  I made it calf length, added short sleeves and lowered the neckline by 1-1/2 inches.

  2. You know I love this dress! and it looks so pretty on you. I agree with the extra ease - drives me crazy when fabric catches on my fantail or other curves :-) The cardi looks so nice. OK - I'm ready to see the jacket!
