Autumn change - Butterick 5046

Today is the first day of autumn and I can feel the need to add some colour to my sewing again. I also did a stock take of the common patterns that I make regularly and that's about to change again - pattern boredom.

Butterick 5046 is my first planned change. I'll still make this with a shiny purple cotton woven to check the fit. I bought this pattern sometime last year during an online so hopefully I'll have this ready to show and tell next week.
I'm working on view A so the pieces now have FBA, hip adjustment, sway back adjustment, neckline gaposis - but I'm still using size 12. As the fabric has a silver thread in it, it's definitely itchy, so it can't become a sleepwear...
PS: Yesterday I finally did some cycle training before the humidity kicked in. 50km of hill training. Call me a mountain goat, but it felt good. DH slept in and had just finished breakie when I came home, so we both had a good morning.

Thanks Gail. I'm amazed that I recovered well too.

Wow, my body cringes at the thought of a bike ride at all, let alone on hills.

Love what you did with your black skirt and good to see the wine coloured knit is not an orphan.
