Mixing and Matching with Butterick 5101



I am not big on wearing pink, but this dusty rose seemed to speak softly to me.  It was one of those random finds from years ago.  You know those fabrics that have no label, but it feels good to the touch.  It reminds me of crepe, but it has a smoother texture.  And like I said, the color was whispering sweet nothings into my ear in hopes that I would take it home.  And I did.  


The top was an easy make but I could not get the collar to lay similar to the drawings/sketches on the pattern (due to the fabric selection).  

I wanted a nice church outfit but I wanted it to be separates so I could do some mixing and matching.
