New Butterick Designs for Fall!

I have two new Butterick patterns out--just released yesterday! The first is B6094. This is a dress with two skirt options and a surprise in the back.

Boom!

Party in the back.

Version A has a full circle skirt, and an organdy petticoat sewn to the lining. View B is a simple pencil skirt.

The front of the bodice is simple and classic: a boatneck and a midriff. The contrast facings form the fold-back detail in the back, accented by two decorative buttons.

I made the sample version in a very lightweight corduroy, in teal and navy. The buttons are self-covered.
Second, a jacket! B6105 is a cozy wrap jacket that's a great transitional piece.

It has a shawl collar, peplum, pleated sleeve caps for a '40s silhouette, and a bow tie.

It looks great paired with a full skirt. Very Dior, 1947! Just as easy to wear with trousers, a dress, or a slim skirt.

There's a second version that is a coat-length. I envision it being made as a coat dress as well.

The sample is made in a cozy boiled wool with a taffeta lining. This would also be great in a stable ponte knit, or other snuggly wool. Crepe, charmeuse, or even cotton work for the lining. The lining fabric forms the contrast shawl collar and tie.

I hope you like the new designs!

  11. Thanks for the jacket pattern! Just right for me, not too complicated.
    I think I mentioned some time ago I wanted to make a jacket for autumn (ie fall.)
    Must get the pattern and get going.

  19. Just when I said I wasn't going to buy more sewing patterns you had to come up with that jacket! I love it. I guess it would be more of a spring/fall pattern, but I suppose it could be winterized by adding buttons. The wiggle dress from your book is also on my list of fall to-dos, and they would pair together so nicely. Hmm...

  24. Yes, this dress is luscious! And, I'm proud of your with your Butterick pattern designing self. I'll purchase and hopefully figure out how I can raise the way cute back a skosh (wanna cover a tat). Hey, maybe purchase the jacket pattern; that could do the trick too.

    Kudos, Gertie.

  27. Oh. I just cut out a jacket from blue velvet. If I'd seen this jacket pattern before I cut it I'd have made this pattern. I love it!
    Maybe I need two jackets...

  30. I really like both these patterns. I think the dress with two skirts and a "party at the back" is such a great look. The back seems to hold up better than most other body parts and seems to be an area to celebrate more. I would have liked to see the straight version made up. And the wrap jacket is lovely too - I am interested in the longer version. Again would like to see it made up, if possible. There are sure to be some versions on the internet in the next few weeks, so I will keep looking.

  36. The jacket pattern arrived today. Looking forward to choosing the fabrics - on the internet, because there's very little choice here.
    Planning to make a buckled belt instead of tie. And maybe a pocket in the side seam.

  37. Hi there! There's someone that's spamming your blog as Anonymous! First I find a person that copies your patterns and says they are her own on Etsy and now someone keeps spamming your blog - sheesh! Love the new patterns. Your sense of style for the patterns is really inspiring! Kathy
