A MUST Sew pattern – Butterick B5495. Great easy to sew top with flattering front gathers. Shame I burnt a hole in the first one, but very quick to sew up another. Give this pattern a try in a print or a plain fabric. Looks great in both.
I thought the shaping on the pattern envelope looked interesting with curved seams from the center out to the side seam at the waist. It was easy to sew and looks good – I’ll certainly be making more of these.

Could be great in a variety of fabrics from jersey for a casual look, to something slinky and shimmery for evening wear.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
