January Garment of the Month
Pattern Review: Butterick 5454
This months theme was to try something new. I totally went against this and sewed up another wrap dress. And no, your eyes are not deceiving you, I am indeed wearing a dress with sleeves! When I sewed up this version here one of my colleagues at work mentioned that it would look nice with sleeves, so I decided to give it a try.
This ITY knit from my stash was purchased back in June at Vogue Fabrics in Chicago. It was on sale for $2.99 per yard. It sewed up beautifully. I cut a 14 and made no changes except to add in a bit more boob coverage in the bodice. I am wearing a black strap top under this, but mostly for warmth as it has been pretty cold here in London.
I don't have too much else to say except that I LOVE this version. Who knows, maybe 2015 will be the year I sew up lots of sleeved dresses.

I am still deciding what to sew for February. I have so many fabrics from my recent holiday that I feel overwhelmed by so many options!
Is anyone else feeling overwhelmed by their fabric stash at the moment?
