Green Vintage Knit Top

I’ve been collecting vintage knit fabrics on Ebay for quite a few months now. I thought this Burdastyle V Back pattern would be perfect for this type of material. I shortened the sleeves and added a cuff of the wrong side of the material with some gold buttons. I also added a placket on the back so I could add buttons there too.

Material Notes

1970’s knit fabric. Gold buttons

    I like the wider hem band and it fits you so well!

    That’s lovely! Of course, short sleeves! I too like the fact that you’ve made it more fitted, very vintage silhouette to go with the terrific fabric and buttons – and you look great in it!

      Thank you! I’d rather short sleeves. I’m so short I feel like half sleeves make me look shorter.

    I totally adore this! You made many alterations to the pattern (which I love anyway!) and you created a unique blouse. I like very much the shorts sleeves and the cuffs and I like that you made it more fitted. Not to tell anything about the super sweet color!
