Grey Tunic Dress

I thought I would start by showing you one of my most comfortable dresses.  I made this about 18 months ago after seeing a sketch drawing of it in a 'Sewing with Stitches' magazine.

The tunic style is made from a Butterick pattern in Ponti fabric (a double knit), was very easy to make and fits me perfectly. Although I feel the fabric is a little too stiff for the cowl neckline which doesn't drape well, I just love this dress.


  1. Hey Shelly, blogging is fun. Once you get the hang of it. I will be checking in looks like we have a lot in common. I have always wanted to visit Australia.

  2. Nice job! Which Butterick pattern did you use?

  3. The pattern I used is B5427 which is now out of print.

  4. Thanks for joining my blog. Love this dress - very much my style.

  5. I'm so glad you made this style that I featured (and also sketched!) in the magazine and that you love it... It looks great!
    Kind regards,
