Autumn top a.k.a the near disaster

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!

Material Notes

Some kind of synthetic stretch – not actually enough drape for this pattern, but I loved the colour combination of the print!

    I love this! P.S. Where did you get that gorgeous fabric icon you used? It’s really beautiful.

      The icon for my user name? That’s actually the border from an illustrated medieval manuscript – I found it on the internet some time ago, can’t remember where! But it is lovely :-)
