Casual Top & Simple Sleeve Hack

I had another opportunity to contribute to SewnMag Anniversary November/December 2018.  This time the challenge was to hack a pattern using lace.  I decided to make a Casual Top & Simple Sleeve Hack.

I used Butterick View D.  This was a very simple project and I knocked it out in no time. Since the hack was limited to the sleeves, I simply cut the sleeve creating three pieces.

I used the middle section as the insert for the lace.  I also added 1/4 seam allowance to ensure proper sleeve length.

This is a two piece sleeve so I simply created a mirror image.

Here is a close up of the lace insertion.

Here’s the finished product.

Very easy and satisfying project when you want to whip out a cute top.

Always Stylish ~ Always Fabulous
