I have made this Butterick top 3 times and really like it as it is a cool top to sew quickly for summer. I raised the neckline about an inch as I didn't use lace and didn't want it to be too low. The fabric is Liberty's Tana Lawn and it is divine!
Here is a close-up of the fabric. It is like a watercolour painting.
I finished the neckline with an overlock stich, folded it over and sewed it down leaving enough room for the elastic. I think it is easier and neater than turning over a small hem and then turning over enough for the elastic casing. I also sew in a marker for the back in red thread as it is hard to tell the front from the back.
This is the pattern. I made the white version on the top right, minus the sleeve ruffles and the lace around the neckline.
My next project will be clothes for these kinds of dolls. I bet you know who she is. Leave your guess in the comments section for this little Mystery Doll!
