Hot Summer Days Pullover Top

I sewed this little top up a few weeks ago and, since it has now become one of my favorite summer tops, I thought I should share it.  I've had Butterick 3383 for some time now and decided to give it a try. I used a printed polyester fabric from my stash. This pattern has no darts so I was a little nervous about the fit. It actually turned out great. Easy to sew and fun to wear!

It's pretty easy to slip over my head and I love the length with the side slits. The pattern suggests bias tape for the neckline and armholes. I cut self-fabric bias bindings for a more professional look.

This pattern is moving way up on my list of  "make me again" patterns. It takes about a yard of 60" wide fabric and sews up very quickly.


  1. What a great little top. It's hard to find a tank for woven fabric - looks wonderful. Cute print!

    1. I've always wanted a casual tank pattern for wovens. I'm excited to finally have one that works for me. I hope you find just the right fabric in your stash!

  2. p.s. I just realized I have this pattern and haven't made it yet! Now I'm going thru my stash for small remnants to make one.

  3. I also have had this pattern for YEARS!! Basic and timeless, what was I thinking? Yours looks great, thank you for reminding me to dig it out of the archives!!

  4. Fantastic job matching the print on the sides. That didn't look easy.
