Wear Everywhere…

I had to add a makeshift  tag for this shirt. I couldn’t tell the front from the back. All it is is grosgrain ribbon and a small zigzag stitch.

Pattern Description: Butterick 5335 Close-fitting top B has raglan sleeves and stitched hems.

Pattern Sizing: 16-22 I cut a 22.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn’t use them. The shirt was 3 pieces. 🙂

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved how easy the shirt was to put together. Literally an hour.

Fabric Used: Cotton interlock

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Lengthened the shirt by an 1.5″

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES!

Conclusion: Love this shirt. I will make this ensemble again. I think its the perfect summer resume drop off outfit.

Pattern Description:  Wear Everywhere Yoga Pants  out of the S.E.W. Everything Workshop book by Diana Rupp

Pattern Sizing: S-M-L . I made the large.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, I read over them before I cut out the pattern, then closed the book.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? These are the easiest pants i’ve ever made.  2 pieces and a piece of grograin ribbon (i used scrap fabric to make a drawstring).

Fabric Used: Linen

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Lengthen the pant legs by 2″

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes.

Conclusion: Love the pants. I’ve had this book since I got serious about sewing again. This is the 1st thing i’ve made from it. lol It is a great book for beginning sewers though. Lots of information on how to choose fabric, stitches, reading patterns, etc.

  1. What a great ensemble! You look fabulously chic! I love when women wear pants like that in the RIGHT length… so many fail. They should always graze the floor! You nailed it!
