I finished my Butterick 5386 top the other day. I’ll write about a full bust adjustment on another top. I filed my pattern and forgot to get good pictures while I was making the alteration…next knit top–I promise, I’ll show you.

This is from a really nice mystery content jersey from Denver Fabrics that I got for like $3/yd. I’m going to look for more of this fabric the next time I’m there because it’s perfect for this top. It’s a little heavier weight but still with some good stretch and a very soft hand.
I narrowed the shoulders because the pattern look crazy wide there in comparison to my own shoulders which made for a more flattering and a more comfortable sleeve. Woohoo!
