Butterick 4799 - the red top

Here's the top I finished over the weekend.

My mom bought me this fabric from India over two years ago. This was in pre-garment-sewing days, I asked her to buy me a meter. I just made it work here - my ties are pieced together to be the right length.

This isn't quite the shirt I wanted to make. That shirt was longer, the neckline was *much* more work-appropriate, and the sleeves were puffed.

Moral of the story? Try a different pattern.

However, I do like this shirt. Perhaps worn with a camisole. Or a better bra.

And I'm pretty sure that it won't lead to little children (or my family) pointing towards me and laughing, so that's good.

Well, at least you gave it another try! Yes, maybe a different pattern for the same style is now in order.
