Butterick 6709 - Gauze Sweater Knit



 Pattern or Fabric, which comes first for you?  Usually, I collect patterns and then when I purchase fabric, I can look through my patterns and find just the right one.






Butterick 6709 has been in my pattern drawer for awhile, just waiting for the right fabric.  After the Style Maker Fabrics' Spring Blog Tour, I ordered Soft Gauze Textured Sweater Knit in Terracotta.  It does come in five other colors.  This fabric is so nice, soft and lightweight for summer but not see-through at all.



I made View A, mainly for the elastic sleeves, I liked that fitted look for the sleeves.  I made a size Medium but I will taper to a small at the hips, this one flares out just a bit too much.





The sleeves were easy to make, they just look intricate but it is just folding for a faux placket.  I made this at the end of our stay-at-home order, yes took me a while for photos!  In my button stash, I had just enough white buttons, a few natural ones but not enough.  So I went to Instagram Stories for a poll, the natural won.  Sorry sewing friends I went with the white, I liked them better and had enough.  Buttons are easy to switch out, so if I get tired of the white or in fall I can switch to natural.



This will not be the only top I make from this pattern, I love the look and really enjoyed making it.  Maybe I should buy another color of the sweater knit.

  7. Cashmere is one of the materials that you can't help falling in love with. It is that silk that all the fashion women are mad about, due to its very soft, stout and warm texture. cashmere cardigan In contrast with the luxury associated with this material, it has a very poor origin that leads to the goat Kashmir, which is being raised in regions like Iran, Tibet or China.

My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
