Butterick Winter Collection 2009

Mostly the same old, same old but I did find one pattern that caught my eye.

I love the front close detail with the loosely gathered front. What a great way to do a jacket. This could easily be made up in a more formal fabric for eveningwear. The rest of the pattern is your basic dress, skirt and pants patterns but the options are endless.


  1. This is gorgeous. I'm obsessed with Say Yes to The Dress on TLC and was convinced a dress made at home could never look as good. You have proven me wrong!

  2. I am going to sign up for one of Susan Khalje's sewing schools next summer. I'm kicking myself for not doing this when I actually lived in Baltimore...or before I made my own wedding gown. Anyway, really looking forward to some hands on instruction with formal wear. I taught myself all the techniques I used for my wedding gown by reading Susan's OOP "Bridal Couture" book. Thanks for the compliment!


Just my opinion....
