Butterick 5917

Happy Halloween!  I finally got to wear the Butterick dress #5917 today.  This is fabric acquired from Fabric Mart, a wool rayon in navy blue, late 2012.  I lined the dress with lining fabric from stash as well.
Here are a few photos of the dress in progress:  This gives you a nice idea of how the ruffles look.

This one you can see in progress with skirt attached to bodice.
And finally the finished dress

I lined the full dress though pattern only calls for bodice to be lined.  I used 3 yards of fabric and lining combined.

Linda, this is just a stunning dress - the midnight blue looks gorgeous on you. It was worth lining all through - you have made the dress so nicely it would have been a shame not to.

Yeah so I bought this pattern and ended up putting it in a box to send to my sister. I send her patterns I no longer want. Welp, I'm pulling it back out? LOL

The ruffles are what drew me to this pattern. Thank your for your comments

Thanks Sarah! The dress met the wearability test- no pulling, not a lot of wrinkling due to the lining.
