Butterick B5506 Apron Pattern Review

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015

The Butterick B5506 Apron Pattern is a fabulous pattern because it has one feature that is just so handy – an adjustable neckline strap!

This is perfect as you can easily slip it over your head and then adjust the strap through the casing to ensure your apron fully covers your neckline area to protect your clothes.

Watch my video below which features 6 aprons I made from the Butterick B5506 pattern as gifts to my family in Serbia!

This year I had my first trip to Serbia, my father’s home country and I had the opportunity to meet with 4 of my first cousins for the very first time in my life, it was such a fabulous experience!

Here are some pictures of my Serbian family wearing the apron’s I made for them, and by the way they turned out to be the perfect gift because they all do an enormous amount of cooking and certainly presented us with a delicious spread of traditional Serbian food for us!

Sewing Pattern Review Butterick 4386

Friday, August 30th, 2013

One of my student’s Anna was invited to a wedding and wanted to make a beautiful new dress for the occasion.

She purchased a gorgeous piece of lace and we transformed a simple Butterick dress pattern B4386 into a designer after five!

What I loved most about this dress was playing with the pieces of lace to get just the right look we were after.

Watch today’s video below where I share with you details about the pattern, fabric chosen and the sewing features!

P.S. Make sure you watch to the end where you will see my special sewing helper!
