I have always been intrigued by Butter by Nadia dresses. If you haven’t heard of them, they are these wrap dresses that you can wear a million different ways.
They are really popular as bridesmaids dresses and I always wanted one but wasn’t really into the colors that they had when I first looked. And then I recently saw that they have a ton of cute new prints and styles.
So I bought this cute little plaid one but in black and white.
I got it about a month ago but I have yet to wear it as it is really kind of confusing! It’s like a skirt with two really really long straps so I’m still figuring out the best way to wear it for my body.
I went online to find some pictures and tutorials of other girls wearing it when I came across rostitchery who made her own version of this dress!
I am so impressed. Even though she says it’s easy, I’m still unsure that I could make it. Make sure to check out her post to see all the different ways she’s figured out how to wear it and her step by step directions. If you have the skills, it would be totally worth it to make it as I paid close to $300 for mine!
I have a sewing machine and I have made pillows, blankets and scarves before but I have never tried making clothes (0r desired to). But recently, when I saw this very helpful video and tutorial from one of my favorite blogs, What I Wore, and I decided that this skirt had to be my first project.
In my search, I also found Weekend Designer who has tutorials on the most amazing designer clothes and then I thought how cool would it be to make something like this Nicole Miller dress?
(Issa, perhaps a new skirt to add to your store? hint, hint, wink ,wink)
My mother-in-law is amazing with the sewing machine and actually went to school for making clothes so I am lucky that I can contact her for any tips. I have a feeling she will be getting a lot of calls from me!
So if you have better sewing skills than I, go check these links out and let me know if you make anything, I would love to see it!
