My Muse!

I finally got up enough courage to make something for someone else.  My mother has always supported my sewing and so I thought what better person to sew for than her.  I figure she will wear it even if she doesn't like it!
So I went through some of my patterns and fabric, found the Butterick 6024 and thought that would be the perfect top for her.  I took her measurements and did a muslin.  I had to do a full bust adjustment even though the top is loose fitting. I used a light yellow linen to make the top.  My favourite feature is the pleats.  She opted for the high-low style of top.  Because my mother is also very petite, I had to shorten the top by 3".  The pattern itself was very easy to work with.  I completed the top in about 4 hours.  Doesn't she look great!


  1. Lovely! She looks great in the top!

  2. What a pretty top! Love the color and the high/low feature. Your mother looks fantastic -- and happy!

    1. Thanks so much! She is always happy!

  3. Wow, your mom looks so young. Very nice shirt also! It looks expensive.

  4. Your mother is so beautiful!

  5. This top is lovely and your mom is a beautiful woman! I enjoyed seeing the blouse with the hi-lo hem. Pretty!
