Butterick 4987 - Ruffle Camisole7:30 PM
I had been in search of a top that would give me a similar look like the fabulous Black Halo Cami Dress. I've been in love with this look since last Fall... remember Mandy Moore wore it on the cover of the October Lucky? Cindy did a really cute version also. I thought it was interesting to have a dress that "looked" like a cami and a pencil skirt. I'd prefer to have separates because they provide more options.
Pattern: Butterick 4987, view C
Fabric: 100% Silk
As you know, silk is a very fluid fabric. I layed it out on top of some old fabric that I would normally use for muslin for more control while cutting. I used narrow hems and french seams (sorry I didn't get any pics of that... the battery died). I wasn't sure how the ruffle would hang, but after steaming it, that's how it fell. I think this is another overlooked pattern that would make a great wardrobe essential.
