Two dresses one pattern

Butterick 5415


If you are a new to garment sewing, this is a great beginners pattern.  It’s out of print now but there are many similar patterns out there and it’s still available if you do a search online.  The two dresses above are made from this pattern but for one I left the sleeves out, fully lined it and put a side invisible zipper in.  It’s more complicated to do the sleeveless version as the construction  is slightly different ( I will include a tutorial at a later date).  The version with the sleeves has facings instead of lining and is very quick and easy.  I didn’t even put a zipper in as I can pull it on over my head.  These projects are quick and as long as you choose the simple views without the bands, only take a few hours.
