Pattern Review: Butterick 5387 Misses’ Top

Threads magazine - 148 – April/May 2010

Style Tip: Make this blouse from a solid fabric to show off the pleated neckline details.

This review was originally featured in Threads #148 (April/May 2010).

Butterick 5387

This sophisticated boat-neck knit top features a choice of sleeves, including a sleeveless look or a long bell shape with an applied flounce. Other views include narrow sleeves in full and three-quarter lengths. The unusual asymmetrical front is made of two separate pieces. One side wraps around the neck band, concealing an opening in the center-front seam. Although this pattern is rated “easy,” the instructions for joining the two fronts at the pleated edge required a bit of re-reading. The loose-fitting silhouette flatters many body types with slightly fitted side seams for a comfortable and stylish top.

(Sized Misses’ 6–20 for busts 30.5–42 in.)
