My daughter, Abiah88, gave me this pattern (Butterick 4655), and when I first saw it I had visions of Joan Collins-Dynasty-1985 dancing in my head. Due to the fact that my daughter has an impeccable eye when it comes to the “bones” of clothes, I gave it a second look. I’m glad I did. This top is destined to become a favorite. It was easy to make, it’s comfortable, and cozy for our New England winters. Next time I make this top I’ll try to sew the front and back panels at the shoulders and insert a slit opening at the back of the neck. That would eliminate all of the fiddly hooks and eyes that the pattern calls for. I’ve paired the top with Colette Clovers here, but it would be great with leggings (if only I weren’t so “mature”).
