HP Weekender Sunshine Tops
Of the two patterns, this one has a more fitted shape. The gathering/draping cleverly molds the fabric to the bust area.
The Butterick pattern is more modest than the Sunshine Top. It doesn’t fit as closely to the bust.
So, which top has won the Clash? I have to say that I like them both. Both fit me better than anything I can find at Chico’s or Talbot’s. Not only that, these tops were inexpensive to make and this basic style can easily be changed by varying the sleeve lengths and/or embellishing the neckbands. So, in my world, they both win. And by that, I really mean that I win!
