Pattern: Butterick 4802 - Top C
Fabric: Georgette

This was a very easy pattern to follow, not problems with the instructions. The only thing that I did not like about this was how the front facing looked showing through the sheer fabric. But once my daughter put on a camisole underneath, that problem was solved. Georgette is a pain to work with; this has to be the most difficult fabric to cut. But the hassle was worth it in the end. I think what I like most was the ribbon and lace trim. I'm very pleased with the way this little top turned out, looks just like the picutre and most of all Amber loves it. I'll use this pattern again and probably make one or two of the other versions.

Pattern: Butterick 4815 - Vest C
Fabric: Wool Acrylic Blend
I've been seeing these little cropped halter vest (see back) all over the place in junior departments and my girls were especially drawn to them when the saw several in the Back-To-School Limited Too catalogue. I chose a plaid fabric because those of us that follow fashion know that plaid are really hot this season.
This was great opportunity to work with plaid on a very small scale. Even though I didn't perfectly line the print up the way I had wanted to, I know next time what to do differently. On version C of this pattern, it offered a cutting line as seen here for the cropped version that I made right underneath the second button. I also decided to use a button instead of eyehooks at the neck.

Pattern: Butterick 4809 - Jacket D

Fabric: 100% cotton - black denim

This little denim shrug/cropped jacket is also a popular item with the teens. I used version D of this pattern and followed the instructions word for word with the exception of the contrasting collar. Not a lot I can say about this one other than the fact that the instruction were very easy to following... no problems here. BTW, here's the back.
