Butterick B5497 ~Video Pattern Review


Caribbean Living Blouse & Hi /Lo Combo

In January all my wishful hopes for warmer days in this Ice Box (Wisconsin) I call home, seemed pointless. How refreshing it was to take spring vacation to Trinidad. Wanting Caribbean Living for my vacation, I was determined to make pieces of garment that would be effortless, during the hustle and bustle of traveling.

Pattern Description: Loose-fitting at bust, dolman sleeve blouse with gathered upper section and shoulder casings with elastic.

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 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The gathered detail is a nice touch, that complemented the white of  my fabric.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. I don’t entertain pain for fashion and appropriate this blouse. The pattern is very comfortable and I like that a lot.
