I found this vintage Butterick pattern when I went antique shopping a few weeks ago. It was the perfect size for my girls and so cute. I am guessing it was from the 70's. Bella picked it for her next top with some Joel Dewberry fabric and linen. It really was a simple pattern, but the directions were terrible. I fought with the yoke for over an hour last night. Once I figured it out, I felt kinda stupid because it was very simple. Even after putting it together, the directions still didn't make sense LOL Anyway, she was very happy with the result. The girls are so funny, they ask me to take their picture now because they know I am going to put it on the blog LOL
I also tried a flat fell seam (I think that is what you call it) for the first time. I am really enjoying all of the articles on the Sew Mama Sew blog, lots of great information. I love how the inside looks as nice as the outside, you have to really look to see which side is the right side. I will definitely be using this seam finishing again. The picture is the inside of the top.
