December Garment of the Month decided...
For my garment for the month of December I've decided that I will make the very popular Butterick 5917:
I was originally planning to make it in a gingham check:
But found this lovely blue seersucker at Spotlight - it's new in. I haven't sewn seersucker before - but I love the idea that it does not need ironing. Also the texture will hide any residual fitting hiccups.
And also, this colour can be worn for many occasions - dress up or dress down. It can be my little blue dress. And recently I was looking for just such a dress. And failed to find one in the wardrobe. So this dress will fill a gap.
Having decided to make this dress, I will now make the second muslin. The first has been made and can be found here.
