Butterick 5967 Misses'/Women's Flutter Sleeve Tops is loose-fitting, has upper princess seams, shaped, flared sleeves with narrow hem, button-down closure, v-neckline, gathered at waist and shaped lower edge.



Fabric: cotton floral Hawaiian print
                                                     Sizes: XS - 6X


Alterations:

Removed  1" from the center back neck to the hem
Removed  1 1/2 " from each side below the bust line to the hem
Shortened sleeve length 2"

I love the comfort and ease of wearing this top. It is considered an easy pattern. Keep in mind that the pattern has an abundance of fullness below the bustline.

    1. Thank you! I try to avoid buttons in the front of anything. I guess because of the fit I didn't have any gaping.
