Butterick 5611 part deux
As you may recall, I've made this pattern before and liked it for the most part. The only part that I didn't anticipate is the "cupping" action of the peplum in the back. I wish they would include pictures of a "real" model with the pattern made up so you can actually see details like that. Because it certainly doesn't look like that on the pattern.
It lays nice and flat now and I can live with it. LOL.
What I'm going to show you now is my re-make of the pattern to create a cool summer blouse that I JUST LOVE.
This last picture to the right is a back facing I created (by tracing the shape off the back pattern piece) so I could attach one of my newly embroidered labels.
The next few pictures are all of my muslin made from some quilting fabric I had lying around. I really like how it turned out.
