Butterick 5416 Maroon Double Knit Knot Dress

After realizing that adding a lining to my previous dress made it too heavy, I decided to eliminate it.

This version went together pretty quick.  I was able to sew it up in an afternoon.  I had this maroon double knit fabric for over a year.  I wasn't sure it was something I would ever use.  But once I got to sewing with it, I LOVED IT!  It sewed like a charm and the floral texture was nice.

The sides of the knot need sewn a little closer to the knot itself.  Easy fix.

Pretty good looking knot.

$9.00 for this dress wasn't too bad.  Another fabric from my stash out too!
