I have a new Butterick blouse pattern--and I'm on the pattern envelope and catalog cover! Since I've always done my own modeling for this blog and for my books, we decided to give it a try with my Butterick line too. This is B6217, a retro summer top with various design options.
Here it is on the real model.
And hey! Here I am on the envelope cover with the little illustrated ladies. (Speaking of which, how much do we love this Tumblr? So much.)
In other blouse news, here's a little video tutorial on It's Sew Easy TV for adding a back button extension to a blouse pattern. This uses the Portrait Blouse pattern from my first book and adds a little variation to it. You can use the technique with any pullover or side-zip blouse pattern though. The video is only up for the rest of the week, so watch it soon!
