As you can see I finished my third version of Butterick 5046 and I love it just as much as the others.
On the second sheer version I didn't line the sleeves and felt that they needed to be lined, I only lined the sleeves about half and I really like the effect. It gives the shoulders stability but the sleeve is still fluttery.
I got this book from my library and I think I will purchase it. Sandra Betzina is my all time favorite sewing hero. I still have articles that I saved from her weekly newspaper column and I loved her sewing program on HGTV. BTW, you can have a week long sewing vacation with Sandra for $2540.00 (shared room) too rich for me but I can't wait for PR weekend next year, she's going to be the guest speaker.
I wanted to try this adjustment but I had already cut out my pockets, I will definitely try this on my next pair of pants.
