I love the pattern sales at Joann’s because it gives me an opportunity to experiment with patterns that aren’t necessarily on my wish list. It’s nice when a so-so pattern becomes the star attraction. Case in point, Butterick 5821.
The fabric looks like suede or leather. It’s only when you touch it, you discover it’s not actually leather, and it’s washable! The edgestitching really gives it the look of leather. This pattern is so simple. There are only four pattern pieces for the dress! For only a few hours investment, you could have a beautiful new addition to your wardrobe. Now I’m on the hunt for more of this micro suede for my 2nd take!
