Butterick 6425 Cold Shoulder Top

Happy Friday Everyone and hoping your day is going well.   New York is starting to heat up and this is the perfect time for a warm weather top...

In comes Butterick 6425: a close fitting top with the cold shoulder detail, also offers length and sleeve variations.


Quick Video of my Cold Shoulder Top


Sewing Details:

Pattern Size: 16

Did it look like the photo? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Clear and easy instructions

What did you particularly like about the pattern?   It took me a minute to get off the fence about this style of top, but after my sewing sister posted her top, I was in it to win it. Of course, the detail that I've come to like is the cold shoulder

Fabric Used: Black / White ITY knit 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  I went with a 16 for the body, 14 for the armholes and neckline.  Scooped out the front neckline for a lower fit, shortened the sleeves and sewed with a lil more than 5/8" seams




Would you sew it again?  I will definitely sew this again and again...lol

Conclusion: This pattern yield a cute top that is perfect for the spring & summer.




Until then,
Have a Great Friday!!!
