Another version of Butterick 4985

At last a nice easy project! This is becoming my TNT (tried and true) blouse pattern. The sizing works for me, it's quick to make up, doesn't use much fabric and can be modified to give different looks.

For this version I used a remnant of printed cotton from my stash and made View A with the fluttery sleeves. I left off the tie because I prefer an open neckline and also I really only just had enough fabric to make this top.

I'm really pleased with it, it's a flattering shape for those of us blessed (or maybe cursed) with hips, especially with this sleeve and I will definitely be hunting through my stash and even the fabric stores to run up a few more for summer.

I have to face reality that I am going to fail to get a BWOF pattern from February completed before the end of March, but I will get around to finishing that jacket project and will get back on track with March's issue. However I do still have 2 jersey tops to sew up first............as I have said before, too many patterns and too little time!

very cool to see different versions of the same pattern. It only takes a little and presto, a completely different look.

I'm very impressed by your sewing. You sew quickly!
