Salmon Tie Dye with Butterick 6050

Hola people! hope you are having a good week! I had a fabulous weekend wearing this amazing dress!
I spent about $9.00 on the fabric $1.99 for the pattern and about 2 hours of sewing time!

This is me trying it on for fit.. ignore the fizzy animal slippers and the mess on my head lol

Yeah there are a pile of clothes in the background.. Ignore them! I was trying things on lol!

Back view.. I could have pulled that elastic in a bit more!

Finished dress view in front of the National Harbor… what a beautiful carousel in the background that I took my Goddaughter to visit last year.. It was a lil gusty out there on Saturday lol

Here is the finished back view! Glad I put sleeves on this dress it was very windy and cold on the boat!
And they had the AC on full blast on in the enclosed portion! All of that provided for a bit of Marilyn Monroe action happening lol

Close-Up Selfie! I had a fabulous time with my date!

Pattern Review!

elasticized upper edge of back, and stitched hem. A and B: shaped
hemline, wrong side shows. B: short

neckline and armholes.
Pattern Sizing: 6
– 14
Did it look like the
photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions
easy to follow?
Yes extremely good for a beginner!
What did you
particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Fabric Used: Tie-dye
knit from Mood Fabrics
Pattern alterations
or any design changes you made:
No alterations, but since I have a small
back, I should had did more adjustment with the elastic back. I cut a 10 on the
top and a 14 on the bottom, which was more than generous! I should have
extended the length just one inch since it’s a flowy dress the wind assist with
a little Marilyn Monroe Action!
Would you sew it
again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes!
Conclusion: Great
pattern for the beginner I will sew this again!
