Butterick Pattern; Sewing a dress

I know its autumn but I've made a summer dress. Its for my nan who lives in Spain so its still quite hot out there, and as my mother is going to visit next week I figured she could take it with her. Its nothing special, its one that she can wear during day and pop to the bar shops in.

I used a Butterick pattern. Its a loose fitting style that can be sliped over the head, no zips or buttons. Its pretty much the same back and front with pleats to add detail. Additionally I added in-seam pockets to the dress (my nan likes pockets).

The pattern was very simple but the yoke was on the fiddly side and I should of added the pockets before stitching the side seams.

I hope she likes it :)

thanks for looking x
