Hello Beauties! Happy Wednesday! Can you believe we’re almost through May?! Where is time going! Summer is right around around the corner and I have to say I don’t know if I’m ready for the Texas heat! I’m here today with another pattern review! This time on a Butterick pattern from McCall Pattern Company. This was my first time sewing it up and I’m in LOVE. I chose a linen blend that I picked up at Joann’s fabric! My favorite part of this pattern is the loose/wide sleeves, I think I have a thing with being too constricted or something! Lol. It was my first time working with any type of linen fabric and let me tell you if you don’t already know, it WRINKLES easily! I looked up tips afterward on how to prevent this and the best I could find is to pre-treat/wash with regular clothing detergent, warm water and a towel to give it a softer hand, also to press WELL, prior to sewing. Aside from that this top was super breezy and comfortable! Pattern Review Below! Enjoy! XOXO Do you have tips for preventing wrinkles in linen fabrics or do we just embrace them? 😉
