    Butterick makes a pattern. B5626.  The color has to be black with black piping - go to the university's website and look at the pictures from last year's graduation to see the style used at your institution.  Hood colors are a required color - go to the Herff-Jones site and see what they say is the proper color for your degree (they have a list).

    Hello, I've been searching for this pattern!  I would love to wear it for my daughter's graduation.  I have two Miyake patterns, 2164 and 2796, if either of those are of interest.  Would you be at all willing to sell/trade/lend your pattern?  I've just started sewing again after a long hiatus... and have fallen so in love with Miyake's designs.  

    Yours,

                 Renee

    Hi,

    I'm searching for 1563, the color block sundress, for my daughter's graduation.  Do you have a copy to sell/trade for/borrow?  I have 2164 and 2796, if you are interested in either of these.  

     

    Yours,

                 Renee

    I found the article in issue 136; thanks so much! I have made this pattern twice now. Both times I used a (wool or wool-blend) tweed and lined it, which complicates what was supposed to be quick to make. I face and interface the armhole slit; I interface each edge that will support snaps. Then I hem it all around, and hand sew a lining to the whole thing. I have received many compliments on the one I made for myself, using a piece of Scottish tweed that I received as a gift many years ago. Just yesterday I completed one for my niece as a graduation gift. I bought the material at one of the shops mentioned in Threads #174, Shopping for fabric in NYC.
