Another Garden-Variety Dress

I love floral prints just as much as I love novelty prints. Perfect for Spring, floral prints are available in nearly all colors and types of fabric. I purchased this floral cotton fabric from JoAnn. The combination of colors caught my eye and I knew I had to make another dress!

I made this dress using Butterick 5982. I made View C and substituted the bateau neckline from View A. The bodice features princess seams and short sleeves, and the skirt combines soft pleats with gathers. I added pockets, but otherwise made no changes (aside from the neckline substitution). The pattern also features a matching belt with velcro closure.

If you can't tell, this dress is exactly my style -- fit and flare featuring short sleeves, pockets, and a colorful print!
