RECOMMENDED PATTERN: Butterick B6070 by Connie Crawford
SUPPLIES: Fabric….designed for lightweight wovens, unsuitable for diagonals, patterns and designs are OK however they may need to be matched. By an extra ¼ yd.
4 – 5/8” buttons
Sewing machine and a serger if you want to use for seam finishes
Sewing tools; shears, scissors, pins, marking chalk, French curve, measuring tape, pencil, scotch tape, extension cord and multi plug. Paper for making pattern alterations. (see “comments” below) If you have and iron and portable board, please bring. Anything else you like to use for when sewing.
Buy the patterns and fabric to fit your bust size. It is a generous fitting pattern, we should be able to a good fit for all body types. I also tested a traditional Butterick pattern with poor results.
This pattern has a tricky fabric “lay out”. Pattern pieces are placed on a single layer of fabric. To make it easier I have 2 suggestions. 1) By an extra ½ -3/4 yd. fabric OR buy 2 yards of pattern tracing paper, available at Joann’s in the interfacing section, called Pattern Ease. This will be used to create full pattern pieces.
Lastly, you may want to increase the length of the shirt. I lengthened mine by 2 inches. So take that into consideration when buying fabric, ¼ yd more and bring some parchment or use pattern tracing paper to make the pattern longer. Measure a shirt you have that you like the length of. Compare to the pattern which measures 23 – 26 inches depending on size.
Hope to see you there!!
