Love the color - "Make it Work"

 Pattern: Butterick 5719 Jacket and dress.


Sizes: 8-24w

 
Fabric: Coral pink jacquard knit from Fabric Mart.

Alterations: Raised the neckline 2"

The inside of the fabric is rubbery and grabs as you rub your hand across it so I decided to underline the dress with coral thin knit.


 
 
 









The jacket is lined with crème polyester.
*This is one of my favorite patterns because of the comfort of the dress and jacket. When using knits I can wear the dress a little shorter because of the stretch. I no longer need to wear my dresses as long nor do I need to wear a hat when attending church.
