Forty ’til 40 // Butterick 5182

Hey Family….Happy Saturday!!  Can you believe were already on look #5?  I know it may not seem like a lot, but to me it’s a HUGE deal.  We have to remember to celebrate the small steps just as much as we do the BIG steps….I made this little number about 2 years ago, when I  saw my sew sister Anita by Design version of this dress. I knew I just HAD to have it.  I had no where to wear it to, but I knew an opportunity would present it self and it did! My mom is the president of Kiwanis Club of Greater Sunrise and they had their annual fundraiser gala which I was invited to last year (2018).  When I received that invite I knew EXACTLY what I was going to wear!


The pattern calls to line the dress, but I opted not to line it.  This fabric has some weight to it and I felt if I lined it, it would be to heavy.


This dress is simply in the front and has a party in the back.  That bow is EVERYTHING!! It spoke to me and I spoke I love when that happens.



Did I say how much I Love..Love..Love this fabric.  It has a shimmer shine to it that when that light hits it, the dress starts talking to everybody.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did and I can’t wait to see you again.

Much love and many blessings!
