Styling the Knit Wrap Top Over Dresses

And we're back! I hope all who celebrated had a nice Thanksgiving. I'm prepping a bunch of sew-along posts for you, but in the meantime, I thought you might enjoy seeing another styling option for the B6285 knit wrap top, shown here in red rose print jersey.

This is a pretty cropped design, meant to end right at the natural waist. So it works wonderfully with high-waisted skirts and trousers, but it's also a great layering piece!

Here I am, wearing it over B6284 in black and white sateen.

It's a totally different outfit than how I originally styled it.

From the back:

I also like the idea of wearing the wrap top over jeans and a long cami for a casual-modern look. Lots of possibilities!

P.S. You might also be interested to know that Butterick is having a $3.99 sale right now! 


  1. Çok çok güzel.. very nice :)

  2. It looks great over your dress! So many styling options with this top! When I get my Christmas projects completed, I am definitely buying fabric and making this top.

  3. Thanks for the styling ideas! And I just wanted to tell you, I appreciate your pattern proportions SO SO much. They're the only patterns where I don't have to increase the waist or hip right now.


  4. Love this! I have my pattern and fabric for the blouse already and I can't wait to sew it! :)


Thanks for your comments; I read each and every one! xo Gertie
