Butterick B5613 View A

September is National Sewing Month and in keeping with my previous sewing project, I present finished sewing project #2!  I was inspired by Gertie's Sew Along via or her blog here.

Butterick B5613 - View A, yoke from View C
Featured in this project were batik from Quilt et Textilkunst (a local fabric shop).
The contrasting pockets were made with fabric by Kokka, purchased from Quilt et Textilkunst.
The zipper was purchased from

the invisible zipper

I thoroughly loved making this project and it was quite simple!  The instructions were really clear, although I did fuss about with the pockets for a bit (which side should face out?!).  The pattern was adapted from View A which has a straight waist detail.  I chose, instead, to do the yoke waist from View C.  I used the main batik fabric as facing.

Happy September: National Sewing Month!
