KNITTERS-DELIGHT

FO - B5495 version 2




Here is my second version of the Butterick 5495 top. I really like how this top can look completely different just by fabric choice. I made this in a size 14, like my previous color blocked version and raised the neckline a bit more.
This is a comfy but classy top that can travel well and brings in the compliments. I go to my daycare during my lunch break to nurse Nilah and everyone told me how much slimmer I looked in my outfit. Score!


Next up - dress time. I have signed on for the summer dress challenge, but need to get to it on making the dress. lol.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw the pictures ~ how slim you looked and how fast you had lost the baby weight! Great top and outfit!

I love this top! Yes, you do look a lot slimmer. Darn it all! ;) I wish I had lost my baby weight. You look fantastic. But what I'm really wondering is how you get so much sewing done with a little baby?!?!?!?!? Do you ever sleep???

It looks fantastic!! i think you've really hit upon a go-to pattern, since you can get so many different looks. and the cut is so flattering!

I like them both! It's a very flattering silhouette on you - maybe you could make it into a dress too. I love the colorblocking idea and may have to steal it.
