This is Butterick 6244. Most of the people that have used/reviewed this pattern have made the coat. I really liked the dress even though it is hard to see any details in the pattern photo. (I wish there was a way to just scroll through tech drawings on pattern sites). I liked the high neck, princess seams, and gentle A-line of the skirt.
The fabric is a black/ivory ponte knit that I bought online more than a year ago. I was a little disappointed that the ivory part wasn't brighter, but thought I could make it work for winter rather than summer. The print is a bit bolder than I usually wear (okay, any print at all is more print than I usually wear).
The pattern calls for woven fabrics, so I sized down for the muslin and then took it in a bit more all around before cutting the real thing. I also raised the bottom of the armholes. They seemed rather low to me. Perhaps I should have just gone down another size overall.
I liked the suggestion of using faux leather for the contrast pieces and used leftovers from these pants. It was very easy to sew and a good match in weight and stretch for the ponte. It adds just a bit of edge and texture. I increased the length of the sleeves to elbow length. Long sleeves would be warmer, but I thought that would just be too much of the print.
Generally, my sewing is very practical and I only make things for myself that I know I'll wear regularly. This means that I haven't made many dresses for me in the last couple of years. I did really enjoy this and will be looking to make more in the coming year!
