Butterick 5527 Border Print Tunic
This is a great rayon knit border print that I got from Fabric Mart. I was constantly on the lookout for a pattern that could use a border print. Finally I found Butterick 5527 .
This is laid out on the cross-grain, which means that the stretch of the fabric actually goes up and down.
It takes a lot of fabric for a top- 2-3/4 yards is the recommended amount for the medium, so the lighterweight the fabric the better. I would like to make it again in a cotton jersey knit, maybe as the top length.
This is a super comfy top that I think I'll get a lot of wear out of. Great for a border print knit too!
