After a series of failed modern patterns, I think I’m done for a while. This is Butterick 5490, a current release. I cut an 18 for the shoulders/neckline area, 24 for the side seams. It looks even worse in person than this picture, but you can see the gaping of the shoulder straps. In order for the neckline to lie flat on my upperchest, the shoulder straps have to be pushed off my shoulders. Also, take note of the solid red modesty placket. The top of the solid red is where my bra starts. There is no way to wear this as drafted without showing your bra. I love the pleat arrangement of the skirt. That is what originally drew me to this pattern. I may take off the bodice and keep this as a skirt.
