Is it me?


b6417_aI was online during the holidays looking at patterns. Everyone seems to have something on sale, and the Big Four pattern companies were no exception.

Then something caught my eye.

The top on the right is part of the Fall/Winter collection on the Butterick web site.  As a sewist, I find the line drawings to be more useful than either the photographs or the illustrations.

Which led to this conundrum: b6417

Does anyone besides me see something off-kilter with views C and D?

The back shows a collar.  The front has no collar.  Where does it go?

Is this finally an example of the Amazing Disappearing Collar?
Has the last collar-no-collar pattern been captured by Butterick to grace their lookbook?
Did the proof reader have a little too much nog in their eggnog?
Maybe the illustrator was sipping hot buttered rum, without the hot butter?

I am tempted to get the pattern, just to see what is what…

  1. Interesting. Whether nog or butter, there is a quandry. A collar stand only on the back seems a bit difficult to draft effectively. I am anxious to read what you find out.
