PIcture on a person:
illustration of view I made:
Description: From the BMV web site: "MISSES' MATERNITY TOP AND PANTS: Pullover top has neckline variations and stitched hems. A and B: opening for twisted draped effect. C and D: collar extends into drape. A, B, C and D: close-fitting. E: loose-fitting, drawstring sides, and purhased tank top. C, D and E: double-layered collar. Close-fitting, boot-legged pants have yokes with raised waist. All have stitched hems.
Sizes: 8 to 24
Instructions: They were pretty easy to follow, but I did have a bit of difficulty figuring out the twisted drape of view B. After some trial and error, I figured it out.
Likes/Dislikes: So many options for different looks.
Changes: First off, Butterick has you sew the sleeves in the round. I did them flat and then sewed the side seams and sleeves in one continuous seam. Also, the side ruching is with elastic in the side seams. I didn’t really care for this and after sewing several of Megan Nielsen's ruched tshirt, I wanted more of that look. To achieve this, I took 4” off the back, then gathered the front to match the shortened back. I probably could have taken 3-4 more inches off the back.
Fabric: A thin striped jersey knit from stash.
Conclusion: Another cute top for Erin, it is a bit long but it will look cute with leggings and jeans.
Hard to photograph without the pillow taped to the dressform.
