The Hepburn size chart placed me in a 4 bust graded to 8 at waist and hips.
My rib knit* was rather lightwaight so I chose to cut a straight size 8 to prevent the fabric from stretching to me and be revealing.
So I cut the Hepburn paper pattern in size 8.
Then I just printed the neckline, shoulders, and sleeves of the Busan top; but, this time, I used a size 6 because of my usual narrow shoulders.
To get my Hepburn/ Busan top, I simply placed the shoulders of the Busan on top of the Hepburn’s and aligned the tip of the neckline. As simple as that!
I love the statement sleeves and the narrow shoulders.
It requires stretchy knits widthwise because of teh slim fit and the turtleneck. Said tutleneck is a bit too far from my neck so next time, I’ll draw it as a trapezoid instead of a rectangle.
It’s the perfect winter staple and it will probably be sewn multiple times either as a Hep/San or a plain Hepburn.
I love mixing or hacking patterns, giving them a longer life-span.
