Subversive Sewer

{August 4, 2008}   The fastest top ever

… and you can tell by looking at it! Really, this thing sewed up in about 30 minutes!

This is Butterick 5216, view C. Notice how in the drawings the models are wearing this without a top underneath. Even if you were flat as a pancake, I still would advise against that. Look at how low it is!

Anyway, it works as a layering piece, albeit not a very flattering one, IMO. I used a cotton lawn, which I ordered out of curiosity from Fashion Fabrics Club because I had no idea what lawn was. A cheap experiment, and not something I’d repeat (the pattern or the fabric).
