Butterick B6025 DIY High Low Top

Unblogged in 2014 #2 – Butterick Misses’ Top, Tunic B6025.

In an attempt to expand my repertoire I wanted to try something new – as you know by now, I’m always looking for new patterns to try and I came across this pattern by Butterick.  It is rated as an ‘easy‘ pattern, so why not!  This pattern has the option to be a dress as well – 3 length options are available which gave it some ‘curb appeal’ when I was searching for my next project.   Three patterns for the discounted price of one!  Shoot.

Materials Used:

  • I had a stash of crepe fabric that I had been dying to use from Joann’s.  This fabric has such a soft feel and  is great to sew with!
  • The usual suspects – matching thread + ball point needle (also found at Joann’s & a part of my stash)

Because I typically sew after work, cooking and whatever else I have to do in the evenings I decided to do this one in sections:

Night #1 – Cut the pattern pieces.

Night #2 – Cut the fabric/pattern pieces.

Night #3 – Sew.

Pattern Review:  Once I got started, I couldn’t stop!  This top comes together very quickly and although the pattern pieces look intimidating, once you start putting it together it really shows the level of style that Butterick patterns has to offer.  This is an easy pattern to follow and Butterick walks you through the steps very quickly.  This is my 2nd time to work with Butterick patterns and I am very impressed.

I learned something new with this ‘make’ – how to sew a slip stich!  After I found out what it was, I didn’t want to do it! I’m lazy! I like using a machine and this hand-sewing stuff was NOT an option!  I did have to solicit some help from YouTube to learn how to do it, but once I got the hang of it… after a few failed attempts, I was happy with the results.  (There are several good videos on YouTube to see a demonstration of what this looks like.)

Sewing Tip:  Slip Stitch (aka Blind Stitch) is a hand stitching technique used to close a hem.

Finished product.

Will I make this top again?  I have mixed feelings about this top.  I love it on my model, but wearing it makes me feel like I LOOK maternal – If ya know what I mean.  And I’m not!  So, we’ll see.  If I do, next time I’ll mix it up a bit with my fabrics.  No details yet.  I want you gals to be surprised!  🙂
