Made from Butterick 5195.
(the black bit on top is my tank top)






I made size 28, even though I am pretty sure I am a 26, I wanted it to be super comfy.

This is the first item of clothing I have ever made that I actually want to wear (halloween costumes don't count).



The fabric is possibly some kind of polyester (?). I get very overwhelmed when surrounded by too much pretty fabric. It's not stretchy at all and it has a slight sheen to it.
I bought it at FabricLand, on the discount wall, for 60% off. I just about crapped my pants with joy when I found it.





I was hesitant about the elastic waist, it's in a casing. It turned out better than I thought it would, but if I make this pattern again, I'd like to try a shirred waist, as I've never shirred before...

All the inner seams are zigzagged (every time I glance at my Mother's serger I can feel it give me hate vibes).
The hems are zigzagged and folded under about a cm and sewn. I did this so the hem wouldn't be as heavy (and irritating to sew).
The neckline was done with a rolled hem, which I have never done before. It's a little iffy in places, but not too bad. In hindsight, I wish I had done the same as I did on the hems, but oh well.

It is so pretty.  I wish I knew what the shape of the top pattern pieces is.  I don't usually buy patterns.





I took a pic of the top pieces for you Ludi. The left is the back, right the front. It can be made with long or short sleeves.
