Working with Large Floral Prints - B5314
At first sight of Butterick 5314, I decided it would be one of my spring/summer dresses of 2009. And of course, I would make it using a large floral print same as the pattern. Large floral prints aren't for everyone, but I thought I could pull it off with my height and size.
After altering the pattern, I starting experimenting with the placement of the flowers trying to duplicate the placement of the flowers of the pattern illustration. Here's how I copied the design of the print using a stretch woven purchased at Hancock.
Stay Tuned, more later on my many projects in progress!
