Pleat neck dress Butterick B5382, Me-Made-May'15 Day 17

Dear sewing fellows,

The wonderful pleat neck dresses of The Slapdash Sewist were the inspiration for this dress.

Sadly, I could not find such a great borderprint fabric like her's but chose a plain colour.
Line Art

I chose the size-grading after my measurements but had to take in 2x2cm at the sideseams plus had to deepen the darts. The neckline pleating took some time to get it alright.

Pattern: Butterick B5382
Size: 10- 12 sleeves-14 hip (afterwards taken in 2x2cm and deepend darts at waist level)
Fabric: viscose jersey
Omitted the zip, neck facing instead of lining.

To avoid the muffin-top effect, I am wearing selfmade undies, pattern made after the favorites of a sewing fellow. I made the top out of an elastic lace without sewing an additional elastic at the waist. This way, there isn't anything cutting my upper hips. The little bow I made out of the fabric after Mema's tutorial.

Have you seen Carolyn's new Superwoman's undies?

I am going to poke around the lovely memade garments at flickr!



  1. Was ein tolles Kleid! Die Farbe ist ja ein Traum und die Falten machen das Kledi richtig interessant! :)

  5. Danke, Luzie! Ich war erst enttäuscht, dass ich keinen Borderprint gefunden habe, aber der Schnitt ist auch in uni schön.
    Liebe Grüße, SaSa
