Butterick 6466 + Love Fabric = Hurry Up Spring!

There is nothing new to say about this TNT pattern except that it is my go to pattern for a quick and simple skirt. Usually I line my skirts but this one will be like "play clothes" for the spring and summer so I just used facings. After making  a shirt from V8747 in this yummy cotton/spandex print (above) I knew I would want a skirt out of it and then the idea of a skirt out of it led to making up V8747 in white, too. (below) I love it when that happens!

I seem to be doing everything except buying fabric for my Red Dress which I am supposed to enter in a contest. Hmmmm...


  1. I love how the 2 pieces look like a dress and then when the skirt is with the white blouse it looks like separates. Very kewl and very spring-like!

  2. Too dang cute. The entire ensemble.

    1. "Two piece dresses" are the best additions to a wardrobe. I have a few that get more wear than almost anything in the closet! This ensemble is so cute and flattering. I know you will love it! Love the red sandals too!

  3. Smart looking outfits! I love that green print with your coloring.

  4. What a beautiful fabric - spring-like and happy. Two piece dress? Brilliant idea, you can really ring the changes.

  5. I'm going to have to try this one! I love it and it looks great on you!
