Butterick B4986
Finished, with a RTW shell

Last week, I showed you my progress on Butterick B4986. The pattern is long out of print.

Pattern Company: Butterick
Pattern Number: B4986

Pattern Description:
Woven twist top; the back is on the bias.

Pattern Sizing:
Butterick sizes 16-22.

I made a size 20 out of the package for the test garment; it fit me fine. No FBA!

The instructions are standard Butterick. I didn’t have any trouble following the.

Fabric Used:
I used a very drapy rayon paisley that a sewing friend gave me.

I decided not to do an FBA out of laziness. I figured that it doesn’t have to button up or otherwise close over my bosom, so the FBA was less important.

I added to the center back over my butt which sticks out. I usually have to increase the sleeves, but this one has plenty of ease for me.

I really like this pattern. It’s easy. There is no interfacing or closures to worry about.

I highly recommend the pattern.
