Too Close to Call-They Look Alike!

The top photo is Iman Global Chic Colorblock Dress for $89.95 on and below is Butterick 5522. Very close! A couple years ago, someone in blogland made a very similar dress. I just thought this was interesting. It just goes to show how fashion comes around again and again.

M6129 is Done!

M6120 View C & D. I wanted sleeves in this and I liked the self-drape from View D. All the tops are the same except for variations for the armholes and in the length. I chose the tunic length. The front has pleats and a midriff. You can see the midriff and the drape in the second photo. I used the long-sleeve version since the temps have changed dramatically here. There is a center back seam. The fabric is from Joanns. It's a stretch knit that I've seen made up on several blogs. This was an easy project. I started on Saturday night and finished up Sunday night. I'm sure I'll make this one again probably the sleeveless version for next summer. And I recommend for a quick and easy project. See you next time!
