Self Drafted Pattern - 216165-1004 V Necked Top
Old reliable tee shirt pattern block - I just keep dragging it out for every new tee shirt variation I can find. Fit depends on the fabric. For this particular version, I had found an oversized twinset at Goodwill, fell in love with the fabric, and held onto it for years. The pink in the argyle p... more...

Butterick - 5859 Misses' Jacket, Blouse, Skirt and Pants
The pattern is for pants, a skirt, a jacket, and a blouse. I made the blouse. Sizes 14-18. I was pleasantly surprised. For a blouse that had no darts, it is remarkably flattering.
