Butterick 5644

, ,
So... I snuck in a quick top this week. We're heading to the beach for vacation and I wanted something new to take with me.

{And, who has time to shop? I find it much easier to fit in a few short sewing sessions!}

I found this beautiful embroidered cotton at Joann's a few weeks ago and had no real idea about what I wanted to use it for. After a quick review of my patterns, I settled on Butterick 5644.

This was such a simple top to make and the fabric was perfect for it!

I originally cut a medium, but wound up taking in the bodice by about 4"! I have that irritating pear shape that makes it difficult to find things that fit. So, I left the bottom as a roomy medium and tailored the top to fit perfectly.

I can wear it with shorts, jeans, or leggings. It's a great length for practically anything!

I'll be leaving the jeans behind on this trip, though!
