I have seen alot of colorblocking at the department stores lately and I love them!
Here is my color block dress using my butterick pattern 5463.
This took about an hour to make..its just 2 pieces!
Its the same pattern I used as this shirt, I just lengthened it a bit for a dress.
and added elastic on the inside to give it some shape....sorry about the pix, I guess I was facing the wrong way from the sun.
oh...and I added pockets.
This dress is where a little bit of my inspiration come from (this dress is $168 at nordstrom). ..but mostly from a dress at Macy's. ..I saw it and loved it and knew I could make it. I couldn't find a pix online but they look identical.
so this is how I did it...cut a pretty wide contrasting strip and sew it down the midde..
Then just fold it in half and put your pattern on top of it to cut it out...pretty easy!
Here is another color block item! This top was made by the same pattern.
I love that all I need to do is surf the web for what I like and whip it up! Or just window shop at the mall...
So that is all I have for now. Thanks so much for looking!
I will be sharing these project here:
