Butterick 6562 – Eyelet Summer Top


I had this eyelet in my stash waiting for a fun summer top pattern to come along. Butterick 6562 caught my attention because it offered some interesting options. The top is described as being fitted. I didn’t think it looked fitted on the pattern envelope but I was pleased to find out that it was.


The shaped hemline is another detail that attracted me to this pattern. I lengthened the top by 1″ which is a common adjustment for me to make.


I repositioned the buttons because there was going to be gaping at my bust between two buttons. I also wanted to add a button right below the band. Without it I was fearful that the band would sag at the middle front. I have a ready-to-wear top that has a button right under a band like this and I’ve always liked the way it looks.


This was a fun top to sew and I’m glad I’ve added this top to my summer wardrobe. Now if it would only warm up on the Central Coast of California so I can wear it.

  1. Really cute, Lucy, it screams summer fun. I am so jealous of your weather, it was 107 at my house yesterday! I love California weather.

  2. What a cute top. Did you have any problem sewing on eyelet? I made a shirt for my daughter once using eyelet and swore I would never sew with it again. Even using a new and sharp needle, my sewing machine struggled through the entire project.
