Spring Patterns are Popping Up Everywhere!

The next label to release their Spring 2014 patterns is Butterick. Is it me or is this earlier than previous years? Not that I'm complaining, it is nice to think that spring is around the corner.

One of the sewing goals that I have this year is to make some wearable under-things. Yup, a pair of knickers. And Gertie released a under-things pattern in this line. It is Butterick 6031.

I'm mainly interested in finding a pattern for the knickers and I thought these were cute. They look like a boy cut style, don't they? There is no description on the pattern items besides the visual description of the photograph and line drawings.

The line drawings have me confused because they don't look like a boy-cut style, do they? I'm on the fence with this pattern. I think I'm going to wait and see what the reviews are over at Pattern Review. And of course, while I am waiting I can re-size that pattern I already have in my pattern stash.

What do you think? Do you have a favourite knickers pattern that you would recommend?

Happy Sewing!


  1. The line drawing looks like a brief yet they look like boy shorts on the model. Interesting. I bet you can ask Gertie on her blog!!

    1. Great idea! I was on my way to her blog where I found that she put up a post about her new patterns and a description. This one goes on my wish list (waiting for a BVM sale).

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
