A real post…


I made this shirt this weekend. It’s butterick 5328 view a. I used a cream cotton broadcloth that I found in joann’s.

This pattern is very very easy if you don’t do like me and mix the inside ties with the outside ties and have to take it all apart.

Had I not made the mistake it would have been completed in 3 or so hours. I will definitely make this pattern again. But ill only show y’all if it’s a really really pretty fabric. Lol

Oh. I love wrap tops.
That is all 🙂

Now.. you can really have a good day.

    I think I might have to try this one. It’s very cute and you say it’s very easy, but with me and the sewing machine, with no teacher, you never know.

    What a great top! I will have to add that pattern to my list to pick up next time Butterick patterns go on sale. I would love to try to make it. And hopefully mine will turn out half as nice.

    Hi, I’m presently making this shirt, I’m not an experience sewer, I’ve only done a few pieces so far and mostly with knits
    About this pattern….Is it just me (or my lack of experience) or are the instructions not very clear after step 14 (front bands), did you find this garment easy to make? Are there supposed to be ties inside also? IF not I made the same mistake you did, and I guess the instructions are NOT very clear…well thanks for posting your finished shirt. I also have a full bust, so it’s nice to see it on someone like me! Did you have to make adjustments to the pattern? Thanks!
