New Patterns: Butterick Winter 2014

I wasn't going to post these until I say B6151 so let's start with that one.

The neck brace, the straps, what the hell is that zipper thing? This pattern seems to think that boobs are dangerous velociraptors plotting to break out of their cage and devour their handlers. Why else would someone think that four straps or two layers of zips are necessary?

Butterick's trying to get some of that wrap dress fairy dust that is floating around the blogosphere. The magic of the wrap are the curves it gives (or enhances on) the body but this one isn't giving her anything. The maxi-wrap is a bit first-lady (not Michelle, she's too cool) -esque.

Comeon, just call it the Princess Kate line.
AKA, the knock-off of LK Bennett line.

Heavens me that's cheap. Please don't put your bridesmaid in this.

Hips gathers? Maybe if you're a twiggy twig-person.

  1. I actually kind of like the bustiers, I would totally wear those clubbing (if I ever get to go clubbing again). I especially like the first and last of them with the zippers and the built-in bolero thing. I think a lot of the WTF-ery is the fabrics they are made in. Not sure who thought that using 1970's sofa fabric was a good choice.
