Butterick 6582 update on my progress

If you remember in my previous post  I am making two blouses and a dress with this pattern. This is the first blouse which will be a straight form fitting blouse. I lengthened the pattern and redrew the dart lines for the back in the above diagram.

In this picture, as you can see I lined up the armholes for the front and back and lengthen the front to match the back, again retracing the darts. When I attach the lining the bottom edge will all be attached.

This is the cut out of the fabric. I will use these same pieces to cut my lining. Which I will show in future pics. This fabric is georgette. Since I am stash busting, I don't see that I have enough lining fabric for both the skirt and blouse so I will have to purchase some lining to complete this project.!
Have a nice day and please post your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!! 


  1. Pretty fabric and looking forward to your dress.
