Girly cold shoulder tunic - Butterick 6457
I looked at the finished sizes and the amount of ease in this top seem very high so decided to cut the smaller size 6 that is probably at least 2 sizes down for me. Now I am a bit sorry that I cut my tissue and not just copied as this would make an excellent top to sew as a gift. Not very complicated to construct and not demanding at all with the fit. I can probably grade it up myself if I would want to make a bigger one. The only tricky part with this top is the neckline ( I kinda of rushed this one and the neck is not perfectly sewn but you can hardly see it in this print so I can leave wit it). At least it looks quite clean on the inside:
I clipped my sleeve opening before turning it so it will stay flat.
I bought this fabric on impulse in the beginning of the summer when I felt my summer woven options were to few and hate it every minute since. They told me it was rayon but it feels more synthetic that my other rayon fabrics ( at least to the touch we will have to see how wearing feels). I also payed a bit more on this then other fabrics I bought this summer from this category. I just had to remove it from the stash fast so I will not have to think again that I made a bad deal with it. This top looked like a good match for it.
