More tracing

While I wait for my machine to return I'm continuing with tracing patterns. I finished the knit pants from Burda and Paco's lovely jacket pattern. Even though his pattern comes ready to cut I went ahead and traced the pieces that I think might need alterations. For example, the maximum hip size is 38 and I'm a 40. I also usually have to add length to the bodice so I added 1 inch to the bodice length. I wanted to preserve the pattern for another muslin if the first one is not perfect.

Next I'm working on Butterick 5523. I'm going up a size in the bodice since the pattern has no ease there. I'm using a ponte knit and I don't want this dress tight across my chest.


  1. I tried to get that Butterick and it was sold out this weekend in every single size!

  2. Love that dress pattern. The belt detail on the back is wonderful.

  3. I'm really keen to make this up next winter. (It's summer here)

  4. That's a great pattern. I look forward to seeing your result.

  5. ooh, that dress pattern looks awesome, i love the back tab!


I love hearing from you!
