I love this top! I usually have good results with Butterick patterns and this is no exception. Instructions are easy to follow and the top goes together very quickly. I made a size smaller than my measurements instructed me too (oops, picked up the wrong size!). But I love the results and get loads of compliements. My daughter even wants to borrow them!
I used a Norma Kamali slinky rayon knit for the one above and a different Kamali knit for the long sleeve version below. I also made a green polka dotted sleeveless top.
I have to admit I skipped the stay stitching steps and several other steps too in the name of speed. It worked fine. Sewing knits doesn't have to be hard or scary, in fact, I used a straight stitch for all of these.
