Pattern of the Week Butterick 6101 - Asymmetric Pullover Tunic Tops
Posted in Special Offers on Monday the 6th July 2015 by Crafty Crafter
We're going casual once again this week with out POW, featuring Butterick 6101 - Asymmetric Pullover Tunic Tops
No matter your shape or size, you can pretty much always find a tunic style top to suit you. Leggings, jeans, whatever you want, it goes! Though it can get a bit samey just throwing a tunic over leggings and going out. So keeping your tunics fabulous is key and this Katherine Tilton pattern does it so very well utilizing one of my favourite styling techniques - Asymmetry!
The draping in the pattern is absolutely fabulous, so using the correct fabric is key! Suggested fabrics for this pattern are Linen
If we look at the rear pattern information, the construction of this top becomes very clear (pattern companies have a habit of using busy fabrics that disguise the make up!) What's that we see on the right hand side? Oh yes, that's a Pocket! Just looks like a casual drape, but no. sneaky storage! The best kind. Sharon of Sharon Sews
shows off this really well with her make
of this pattern...
I love how the construction of the design adds another dimension to the print!
Now this is my favourite mock up of this pattern as you can clearly see the different sections and really play with patterns and texture. It's a great stash buster, too! The largest contrast piece you need is 0.8mt for contrast one, and 0.5mt for contrast 3, and that's for XXL!
I love it when a fashion designer teams up with a pattern company. Making your own clothes gives you something that doesn't look off the rack anyway, so when you can get a designer pattern it makes it just that little bit more, gives it a bit more pop! And when that designer pattern is half price, it's even better! This week this pattern is just £4! A Designer take on a fashion staple for an everyday price. Beautiful!
See you all soon! Be sure to send pictures of your interpretation.
