I really love Butterick B5354. I’ve made it countless times: most recently for Maggie; for myself with short sleeves and without; and for my BFF last Christmas. Its just such an easy top that looks great and is terribly comfortable – what more could you want? I could warble on about it all day, but having done so in countless posts already, I wouldn’t want to bore you.
My BFF has been doing a degree, by distance, part-time over the last seven years. That’s commitment. Today she handed in her dissertation and I am super proud of her. So I decided to send her a package of seven special things, for seven years of rocking the world of science. Among other things, I’ve made her a pair of Rosy Ladyshorts, identical to mine and a new B5354. Cause you can never have too much of a good thing right?
This time I’m making her one out of Birch Organics ‘Bear flight mineral’ which I got from Bizzy and Boo Fabrics on etsy. I am currently going through a phase with Birch Organics – I love it. The weight, the feel, the prints and colors – it is just wonderful. I cant get enough of it.
The print really suited the top I think, and I’m really pleased with out its turned out. I’m loving using the twin need for finishing hems, necklines and sleeves. I think it it makes everything look 10 times better!
