Butterick 5498 + M5523......

My first sewing project of the year Butterick 5498, simple, easy and stylish.
I used 1 meter leopard print  knit from fabricland,  wanted to make the 3/4 " sleeve but didn't have enough fabric so I lengthened the short sleeve by 2", cut size 14 and lengthened the bodice by 2". Eveything took about 3 hours from start to finish .
Here is how I wore it with my M5523 skirt yesterday.....



  Conclusion: All in all a great pattern to start the year with.....Highly recommend
