Butterick Pattern Sale

 I was at Hancock Fabric store last week.  And the patterns were on sale for $1.99.. Now, how can I resist that?   I saw this  retro pattern , and really liked it.  So of course it had to come home with me.

  I love Olivia Walton style dresses.  Eva from the Oppulent Poppy , has made several  of the wrap dresses ,that Olivia wore.. [Please check out her blog, she is fantastic}   She suggested  using this pattern,
 for the wrap dresses that Olivia wore.. and to do some adjusting  to the bodice.  So, I was proud to add it to my  stash.. I look forward , to trying to make  an "Olivia Walton Look Alike  Wrap Dress'. Thankyou Eva, for sharing this information.


  1. The Oppulent Poppy is one of my favourite blogs. I love her house dresses. At one point she considered making a wrap dress pattern to sell. I wonder if she is still pursuing that?

  2. they look great!the wrap red one in the left hand corner would be my choice!

  3. I love these patterns too! Umm where do you start? I really like Charlotte's suggestion of the red wrap. That would be so pretty and perfect for the fall!
