Butterick Classics 6598

I have a collection of fabrics that I take out, look at and put away again - too chicken to cut and sew, not sure enough what to do with them. This top was made with one of those pieces - it was a big piece of fabric and I always thought I should make something "big" out of it to fully utilise it.

A year has probably gone by, and I chopped it. This Butterick 6598 top took about half of it.

I followed the pattern but made these modifications -
  • slightly widened the torso from the waist down
  • put slits in the side
  • put slits in the arm seam
These would have been unnecessary if the pattern had been my size or if I had remembered to cut the arms and sides a bit bigger in the first place!
