How many new sewing patterns have you picked up recently? This is one of the new Butterick's that I thought was cute and unique.
Actually, I've purchased several blouse patterns and chose this one to complete first as we are still having some beautiful weather. You might smirk as you read that statement but we've had plenty of snow in year's past on October 1st.
I made my usual size 14 based on my high bust measurement of 36.
The big 4 patterns have quite a bit of ease and it is recommended by many pros to use your high bust measurement when choosing a size.
This top is my wearable muslin. The orange stretch gingham is from Marcy Tilton and I couldn't resist it as orange is one of my favorite colors to wear.
I made my usual FBA and I think it would have worked better had I made darts. See, there are some drag lines. Just to make this a bit different, I doubled up the buttons down the front.
I love how the back fits. I made my usual swayback adjustment along with a sloping shoulder adjustment.
I am pretty happy with my new top!
Thanks for reading
