Butterick 2704 - pillowcase to top
Butterick 2704 -so much in one pattern. I have made the coat, top, beach dress, and trews (so only skirt, shorts, and jacket to go).
I saw these 2 pillowcases, and adored the vivid design, what I hadn't factored, was that the design and grain would not run true to each other, and in order to get the cut from the pillowcase I had to sew the pillowcase halves together and work with what I got, its really only near the hem the design join wavers and it is (I hope) barely visible. In fairness, this was the only problematic bit, the rest was a breeze. The top has no fastenings, but a wide neckline, and the hem is just below waist, and is fully lined, so no facings - very cute but needs a lower hemline (or complimentary fabric added on?) if worn with jeans as it is a bit short.
