Black wrap top – butterick 5328

Here’s one of my tops for my dark swap.

The fabric is from Pitt Trading and for a cotton it’s quiet fragile.

The embroidery border is only placed on the front panel and I’ve matched it on both left and right panels. I’ve used black buttons instead of ties to keep the shirt on, rather than have it slip off.

I’ve also added detail on the sleeve hem to keep focus towards my face instead of at my hips. The sleeve gathers were also added to create the illusion of a waistline – ha.

I took out the excess fullness in the back by adding in another dart, rather than take the vent any further. The top does have a swap back adjustment, rolled shoulder adjectment, full bust adjustment and additional fiddling with the front gathers to have them where the fullness is needed.
