Garden Party Dress: Butterick B6186

Garden Party Dress: Butterick B6186

Remember the second collection of Rifle Paper Co. and Cotton + Steel collaboration fabric, Wonderland? (If you don't, check out this article I wrote last year.)

Rifle Paper Co.とCotton + Steelのコラボレーション布、第二弾のワンダーランドコレクションをおぼえていますでしょうか?(覚えていない方は去年書いたこの記事を参照してください。)

ワンダーランドコレクションが出たのは去年の春。やっと布に合わせて型紙を選びました!選んだのは、Butterick B6186です。このパターン、ネットであまりレビュー等が見つけられなかったのであまり人気がないのかもしれません。でもシンプルで上品な良い形だと思います〜。

The collection came out in spring of 2017. I finally picked out a pattern to make a dress with one of the fabric that I bought from the collection. It's Butterick B6186! For some reason, I couldn't find a lot of reviews or articles about this pattern, but I think it's cute and chic basic dress pattern!

I really like the shape of the neck opening of this one!



If the dress in this photo above looks crooked to you, that is because the bodice is smaller than my actual size.

Though, this pattern seems too run big too. I find that Mccall's and Butterick patterns are pretty consistent when it comes to sizing, but the princess seam dress patterns seem to be an exception. My other princess seam dress (M6741) that I made before came out a bit big too. I think I can cut out a size smaller of this one next time.


Here's a close-up of the pretty neck line! It's not too deep, just enough to show off a necklace.




Aside from being a little big, I quite like the shape of this dress. I used to make dresses with fully gathered skirts, but I've been liking dress with less volume lately. This dress still has a beautiful A-lined shape but not over-the-top. 

I think the top bodice needs some adjustment really doesn't do the pattern justice when it doesn't fit right. Mine looks too baggy, enough to bother me so I'll try to fix that!

Once I get the fitting right, I can see myself using more of this pattern. It's a little more grown up kind of dress (well, shape wise anyway), don't you think? :)
