butterick top
Butterick 4986

Is that an unflattering picture or what?

I don’t think that top looks that bad in person. It’s Butterick 4986. I modeled it at a BABES event, and they all thought it was great. It’s too small under the bust, and it’s too long in the neckline. Georgene suggested that I turn the neckline into more of a sweetheart neckline by adding little gathers at the side. We’ll see.

I’m not working on this right now. Instead, I have 3 t-shirts in the making. My tried and true (TNT) basic t-shirt is on ‘Tina waiting to be hemmed; it’s out of a lightweight white poly from Joann’s. My raspberry cheongsam is on the cutting table with the shoulders sewn together. I decided to put a facing on this one, where the fronts attach. I don’t like the little sew in snaps, so I’ll need support for whatever closure I decide on. I know, I know, I should have the closure picked out before starting, but I just don’t work like that. And my grey burda twist-top t-shirt is cut out and waiting for its turn to be sewn.
