Since I couldn't start on the Butterick dress without the pattern, I brought out an oldie-but-goodie — Ottober Woman 02/2007. But I just received an email notice from Club BMV that BMVs are on sale so I'll be placing my order tomorrow and hopefully starting on fitting the dress next weekend. Yay! I knew there would be a sale soon enough.
But back to the Ottobre tee — Basically the same gathered front tee as always, with a neckband instead of a bound neckline, and I added a couple of fabric roses to liven it up. They blend into the print in the photo, but they show nicely in real life. My coverstitch machine was happy to be back at work. I think there was a bit of jealousy brewing over all the time I've spent with the vintage Viking lately. ;-)
I took pics while making the roses and have a little tutorial for them, here. They're very easy!
