Butterick 6065...

... was my perfect summer top last year and worked well for work and weekends. 

 Butterick 6065: Misses jacket, top, dress, skirt & pants.  Fitted pullover top or dress is close-fitting through bust w/ shaped hemline and narrow hem. 

I only wore the top with pants or shorts, because it didn't pair well with my skirts... so this top was placed in the only wear with shorts/pants slot.  I am sure I am not the only one that have tops that are exclusively paired with certain bottom pieces.

Then 2014

Fast forward to 2015 and twice, I attempted to wear what was last year's perfect summer top, but, I wasn't feeling the long sleeves and back in the armoire it went.  This time I decided a lil refashion was in order.  Shortened the sleeves and with the neckline a lil loosy goosy added front and back neckline darts... done.

Now 2015

Perfect lil refashion paired with old loft linen pants and coral/apricot bandolino sandals.

Until then,
Have a Great Week !
