Project Vlog – Butterick 6094 Mockup

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!  Have you given Butterick 6094 a try?  Would love to hear how yours turned out!  Until Wednesday, Happy Sewing!
