Pattern: Butterick 5537
Fabrics: Dutch Wax print from Middlesex Textiles.
Notions: Epic [polyfil] thread.
Pattern description: Loose fitting, shawl collar dressing gown.
Pattern Sizing: Small, Medium & Large. I made the medium.
Did it look like the photo/line drawing on the pattern once finished?: Yes
What did you like or dislike about the pattern?: Well written pattern, with clear instructions. Simple and straight forward.
Did I make any pattern alterations or design changes? No.
Would I sew it again or recommend to others? Yes, I will definitely make it again. Thinking of a winter weight version, may be lined with terry towelling.
Conclusion: Great pattern and it is quick to make. I like the sleeve turn up detail. It’s the first time i have sewn with Dutch wax fabric and I love it, pre-washing is essential to remove the stiff finish. Used the whole 5.5m length with only a little fabric left over – the pattern say 6m. The fabric is sold in 6 yard lengths [5.5m] and is a brilliant economic fabric in a huge array of prints.
