For my first attempt at following a pattern I wanted to stay very basic. I flicked through the pattern books at my local fabric shop for hours and eventually decided to make a top. The Pattern I used was Butterick B5463. It took me a few evenings to make and was very easy. I made a good choice as my first pattern but was a bit disappointed with the results, mainly due to my choice of fabric and lack of fitting skills.
I could not take a picture of it on as it is looks much like a poorly made dinner lady's top. Its not a top I will be wearing ever but I am still proud that I made it myself and it gave me the drive to try something slightly more fitted.
