On the Cutting Table: Bristol Button-Up

10-bristolAs much as I love beautiful dresses and classy ‘business wear’, my lifestyle is pretty casual so I’m always on the lookout for patterns that I can either sew¬†several times or at least make a garment that I’ll wear a lot. Last week, Peek-a-boo Pattern shop released the Bristol Button-Up and I immediately snagged it – I can totally see wearing this look with a pair of skinny jeans and some fantastic boots (note to self, I need new boots now).

I’ve printed off the pattern (but have yet to put it together, that’s today’s job) and pulled fabric from my stash…. yes, I actually have everything on hand to whip this one up (full disclosure, I had purchased flannel last year because I thought I was going to make Easton a Lumberjack Shirt and that just never happened). I’m leaning toward the tunic length and am crossing my fingers that I have enough material to pull it off! I am also contemplating using snaps instead of buttons since I have quite a few from the Adelaide project that just didn’t work out.
