DIY Off the Shoulder Shirt/Dress

August 11, 2015


Hey everyone!  A really quick post because I posted some pictures on my Facebook over the weekend of a quick casual dress I made.  I got a lot of compliments on it so I decided to post it here along with a pattern review for my fellow sewing divas.  


DRESS: Butterick 5357 - View D (this is actually a top pattern but I added length from the waisline and made it into a dress)


Pattern Description:  Misses Tops

Pattern Sizing:  I cut a medium but it was huge so I had to alter to make it smaller.  I think I could have actually cut an XS.  

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?


What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I love the french seams.  Gives such a cleaner look


Fabric Used:  

100% cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This patterns runs big. I cut a medium but it was so big I had to alter.  I will cut an XS next time because I think even a SM will be too big.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

This was super comfortable.  I can see myself making one in denim and also in a knit fabric to get a

different flow to it.  


We will chat again soon!
