Description

This is adapted from Butterick 4127 pattern I posted on earlier. I didn’t use the collar, instead widened out the neck, which meant cutting off some of the raglan sleeve at the neckline. Some loose gathering at neck and sleeve makes it seem a bit more contemporary

Material Notes

Some gorgeous green floral silk – remnant from a halter maxi dress I made last summer. ( I may yet post on this?)

    This top looks great and I really love the fabric. You should post your maxi dress, I would love to see it, I was thinking about trying a maxi for one of my next projects, although summer is nearly over here now….

    I just finished this top after being so inspired by your positive comments about my previous effort. A real motivation to sew up this top I cut out a couple of weeks ago. Now enjoying midnight snack!
