This will quickly become one of my favorite patterns. This is the top I made to match the Newlook 6103 skirt.
Here is the back view.
Pattern Description: Butterick 4985. I made view C.
Pattern Sizing: 6-12 - I cut a size 6.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very clear instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the ease. Even with all the pieces, the top was very easy to make. My only dislike is that it is a bit short. If you are long wasted, keep this in mind.
Fabric Used: 100% cotton blend
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I let out the side seams 1/2". Needed more room across the bust. I also clean finished the facings.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I absolutely would sew it again. And I definitely recommend it to others.
Conclusion: I love this top and will make it again. If the directions are followed closely, I think it would be a nice challenge for a beginner. A FBA will be a challenge using this pattern, but I am going to try it on the next one.
