Butterick 5920 pt2

by the time we started sewing this week, we had sewn all the bodice darts and were ready for the side and shoulder seams.


If you look  closely at the blue top it has an extra dart, it has a side bust dart, when we did the full bust adjustment for Denise’s top it was easier to add an extra dart rather than move it to the bottom as the bottom dart was already quite big.

Although we aren’t going to have the pockets on the top and put them on the skirt I thought that it might be a good idea to get some practice in for the knotches before putting on the front facing.

the last bit of the evening was the underarm seam.

the next week is going to be spent putting in the sleeves and starting on the skirt.

updates next week
