I picked up Butterick 6094 back in May when a local store was going out of business. I also found a beautiful rose print fabric that seemed perfect for the dress! I showed them in a haul video HERE. I was pretty nervous to cut into the fabric and knew I needed to be certain of the fit and construction before hand so it was crucial to make a mockup.
With my post 2 kids body I’m less and less sure about my size and fit than I ever have been. So jumping right into making my final garment isn’t as much of an option these days. Plus I wanted to make sure I understood all the pattern instructions since there were a few techniques I hadn’t done before.
A friend of mine gave me several bags of curtains from a house remodel and it was the perfect, free material to use for my mockup.
I vlogged the process in hopes that it would help some one else, or at least inspire someone else to give making a mockup a try. Check out the video HERE!
In case you’re wondering…here is how the final dress turned out!
I’m super happy with the dress and will be sharing the stitch-by-stitch tutorial for it on Wednesday! **Updated – watch the full tutorial HERE!** Have you given Butterick 6094 a try? Would love to hear how yours turned out! Until Wednesday, Happy Sewing!
