It’s a bit late, but here it is anyway. Butterick 5559 in black ponte knit. I added an FBA using the pivot/slide method, which was easier than it looks at first. I don’t recommend trying to do do an FBA with the slash and spread method, though my slash/spread version was fairly comparable to the one I ended up using. If you have larger upper arms (some of us do have muscles!) I’d recommend scooping out the armscyes.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
