Pattern Review B5218 Revisited

Butterick 5218 (click images for larger view)

Pattern Description: Loose-fitting, pullover tops A, C, tunics B, D have collar variations, front button closure with front pleat, back gathers, dropped shoulders and sleeve variations. A: self belt. C, D: patch pockets and long sleeves with inside buttoned tab to hold self-rolled cuffs (wrong side will show)

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 8

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes I think it does

Were the instructions easy to follow? Super Easy, I actually made this before last year in white so I did not look at the instructions this time but I remember them being really easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love how loose fitting but still flattering this is. I really wanted something I could wear with leggings and my casual boots and so this was perfect.

Fabric Used: Plaid cotton

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: The only thing I changed was the use of buttons, the fabric seamed a little western to me so I used pearl snaps instead 🙂

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Not sure since I have done this before as a shorter version so I may retire it 🙂

Conclusion: I love this look and it’s so easy and comfy to wear while still looking

I cut the pockets on the bias so they would look different.

Here is Petunia wearing it, she begged me to let her try it
