2018 Spring Patterns Review

I’m starting to have a weird love/hate relationship with patterns. I’m a pattern sewists, sure I draft somethings, but I’ve found most things I dream up or see and want to recreate can be found in a pattern. Or at least I can use a pattern as a starting place and make some mods to…

Wrap Top – Butterick 6285

I love all things that wrap! I mean who doesn’t? Wrap dress, wrap shirts, wrap skirts, they’re all great! I know I’ve made one wrap skirt (here), a reversible wrap dress (here), several faux wrap dresses and a few faux wrap tops, but never a true wrap top. That might be because I rarely make…

Lumberjack Plaid Coat – Butterick 6244
