Completed Project: Butterick 4228

I completed the wearable muslin top portion of Butterick 4228.  This is a pattern from the sixties, an era I seem to have suddenly become enamored with. 

As touted on the pattern envelope, this top was easy!  And it has a very flattering drape.  Here is a picture of the completed top.

I thought it would look nice styled with this cardigan.

My plan is to do the complete suit in this lilac linen.  Then the skirt will have two interchangeable tops.

I need to prewash the linen, so I think I'll jump into a couple of other projects first, but I'll be back to this one pretty quick because I can't wait to wear it as an outfit!


  1. What a great top - I love the pattern you used & it's really pretty fabric. I think it looks great with the yellow & the lilac linen, what a lovely outfit :-)

  2. That is fantastic fabric...great outfit Dee!

  3. Cute top. I love it with the sweater.
