Just a Quickie -- Butterick 5466

I've been determined to make this skirt for the past couple of weeks, and finally did today. I'll put the review up on Pattern Review later tonight, but wanted to share some pictures.
I really like this outfit. The top is one of the Liberty collection at Target. I think this is wedding shower appropriate, or future son-in-law graduation appropriate, so I can see several places where I might wear it. Same material as the other dress I just finished... this was my extra and I used it ALL. I had to piece the waistband, but no one but me and y'all will even know, and nobody will even care!

One thing I've decided is that while a full length mirror is a necessity, everyone should take some digital photos of themselves in their outfits and see what they really look like. For example,
I love this cardigan, and while it matches, it just makes that ruffled collar stand out and look kind of clownish. The cardigan, shirt, skinny belt look is great. But not on me. (Ignore the fact that the shirt is wrinkled.) I just don't have one of those waists that needs emphasizing.

Anyway, the skirt is super easy to make, and I will definitely be using this pattern again and again.


  1. I do love those colors together. Looks so springish.

  2. Nice outfit! And very "springy"!

  3. Great skirt. The whole outfit looks wonderful - the colours are beautiful together. I love that Liberty for Target top!

  4. All of the combinations are great.

  5. Very cute. I do love the color contrast of the cardigan and skirt.

  6. I actually really like the outfit with the belt. Good trendy!
