Treadlette Tuesday: One pattern two ways!

This week Rebecca is sharing another of her dresses with us. Well, actually, two dresses! Both using Butterick pattern 6169.

The first one is made in a summery white linen blend. Rebecca added a few extra seams to eke this dress out of limited fabric, then highlighted all the seams with contrasting hand embroidery!

Don't be put off by the idea of hand work. Big, simple running stitches are so easy and quick to sew - and make such a visual pop!

Here's Rebecca wearing dress number two! Made in a drapey grey knit, but with no changes needed to the pattern.

Rebecca always loves the simplest finishing techniques, especially for knits. She used self-fabric bands at the sleeves and neck for a streamlined look.

Stop in and find your next project today!
