But what to do with a 1m by 1m piece of fabric? I finally found a pattern that I could squeeze a summery top out of my batik, Butterick 5354.
I made the yellow version because I didn't have quite enough fabric for the longer version or the sleeves.This pattern is meant for a knit fabric, but it worked perfectly well with this woven fabric. I did change the side seams - I didn't curve the pattern in towards a waist, instead I drew a straight line from the bottom of the armhole to the hem line. I also extended the hemline 2" to accommodate my current figure.
So that is the final of my 3 new handmade items for the month of May!
I have since made another woven fabric version of Butterick 5354, which you can see here.
