Auckland, New Ze...
With the weather getting colder in the southern hemisphere, I wanted to make some long-sleeved tops. This was my first ever Butterick pattern (5525) – and so my first experience of how much ease they work into their patterns. When I finished it, the shirt was a full two sizes too big. Much cursing and seam-taking-in later, I can wear it, although I should go back and take in the hips even more… But I love the print, and the neckline, so I’m enjoying it anyway!
Some kind of synthetic stretch – not actually enough drape for this pattern, but I loved the colour combination of the print!
