After all the other pattern releases, it was about time for Butterick to join in with their spring releases. If you love dresses – you are in luck! Or maybe out of luck if you aren’t looking to buy any new patterns. If you were hoping for anything other than a dress, too bad maybe next time.
Some of the more notable patterns:
|B5750 – One of the Suzi Chin dresses|
|B5749 – Another Suzi Chin pattern|
|5749 Line Drawing|
|B5758 – A Maggy London design|
|5758 Line – I actually like the back a lot.|
|B5752 – Maggy London – not a huge fan of the side pannel ruching here|
|B5751 – Maggy London. I actually like the top here.|
And, for the Retro lovers:
There were a lot of other new patterns, but I didn’t think they were very interesting. It seems Butterick has decided to join Burda in promoting the sack dress as super fashionable. Overall I would have to say this is a good release (there are lots of pretty dresses) and yet there isn’t anything I find myself really wanting. Although I find myself responding better to many of these designs than those in the recent Simplicity release, there still isn’t anything here that I find myself dying to make up. Or I can use other patterns in my stash to create something similar. So I don’t know if I will be adding anything to my pattern wish list, but if I see a lot of stunning creations turning up on Pattern Review I might be persuaded to get some latter on. So, what does everyone else think? Anything you are obsessed with? Or just another bunch dresses?
