Valery Peters from Butterick Patterns emailed me back in, er, Sept to ask permission to post my version of Butterick 5559 to the Butterick Facebook page (when my profile email was going to my unchecked gmail and not yahoo, so I didn't see the mail til Oct). My answer: absolutely! I'm honored!
On Wednesday, the pix were added to their Facebook page and in an album called 5559. Here are some screenshots:
Thank you for saying you think it's fabulous, Butterick, and thanks for the fantastic pattern! I think it's fabulous too and I got a lot of comments when I wore it back in the warmer weather. I will be wearing this at PR weekend Austin next weekend!
Something I've learned from my experience with Simplicity at the ASE and with Butterick here is that the pattern companies are reading what we write about their patterns!
