Butterick 6134

This flattering, form-fitting blouse is designed with a funnel neck, three-seamed raglan sleeves, and a center-back zipper closure finished with a hook and eye. The angled seams add visual texture and facilitate a custom fit. There are center-front and back seams, front princess seams, side seams, and back fish-eye darts. Variation details include short or long sleeves, a front neckline slit, and side-front hemline slits. One view has no center-front seam, is underlined, and made from bordered lace. The view places the decorative lace edges at the sleeve and bottom hems. The instructions are accurate and detailed. If using a woven fabric, our tester recommends checking and adjusting the sleeve ease and circumference if necessary. This top can be worn for many occasions, depending on the fabric selected. The style is ideal for stable knits or lightweight wovens, such as challis, crepe, and poplin. Lace options include chantilly and alençon. When using lace, select a lightweight underlining, such as a tissue-weight knit or tricot. For a creative touch, use a contrasting color for the underlining.

(Sized Misses’ 6–22 for busts 30.5–44 in.)

Style Tip: Be inventive and combine coordinating prints in the top’s sections.
