In my need for more separates in my wardrobe, I went through my pattern stash and found Butterick 3286.
This 1960’s pullover sleeveless top features a variety of necklines. I choose to make the shallow (almost bateau), which I find most flattering on me. is so easy to put together that after I quickly made 4 of them in one day.
The pattern itself is so easy to put together that I quickly made 4 of them in one day.
The pattern itself is very similar to Simplicity 1364 (a re-issue vintage pattern), which if you recall I made 4 of last summer. The only main difference is that Simplicity 1364 is supposed to be slightly more fitted and includes a back zipper. The Butterick 3286 pattern is a looser fit with both the back and front pieces cut on the fold.
I really like the casual look of this top and being sleeveless it’s a great top for summer.
This top is also very versatile as it looks great with a pair of jeans or with a stylish skirt. When paired with a cardigan or blazer the top works well for wearing to the office.
I’m really happy with how this pattern came out and I glad to know that this is my second pattern this year that counts towards my #VintagePledge.
