Butterick B5789

The Butterick B5789 is a fast and easy pattern with 5 different views for a draped vest or jacket. It can be sewn sleeveless or with long sleeves.

I sewed this pattern in the winter of 2018 so I had a chance to wear it a few times. I chose view D which has a draped front and long sleeves. The fabric I chose was a heavyweight stretchy cotton. Because it was a heavyweight cotton, it kept me quite warm. I used a brooch to pin at the top to keep it closed rather than sewing a button.

It can also be worn open which showcases it’s draped front.

The pattern is labeled as fast and easy. It was a simple pattern to use. I am planning to sew the sleeveless draped vest for the summer season using a lightweight fabric. The sleeveless vest will make a great cover up to wear with a tank top or summer dress.
