Butterick 7444

I had dreamed of a perfect sailor top for years and finally made one from the very charming Butterick 7444 last week. I chose a dark grey cotton for the main parts and a lighter grey for the detachable collar and also used three very cute (and purely decorative) metal buttons. I am absolutely delighted about this easy and very well fitting pattern and already made new plans to use it again in a lightweight silk fabric.

See a few more pictures on my blog.

Very cute! I love how the collar is detachable so you can change up the look. Nice job!
