Godet Anyone?

Godet: 
A triangular piece of material inserted in a dress, shirt, or glove to make it flared or for ornamentation.


Not only did I enjoy making this top, but I really enjoyed wearing it!  I wore this to a friend's 
surprise graduation party last weekend.  
I wish I could have worn higher heels, but age and aches prevents that more often than not! 😁




The pattern is Butterick 6248 and has a few variations to select from.
I've had this pattern for about a year or so.  I initially bought it to make view B with a super lightweight sweater knit, but still haven't decided what to do with that fabric. 





I ended up making view A because I've been stuck sewing in my dining room while roof repairs were being done.  I needed instant gratification! And I got it!  





I purchased this fun ITY print from Vogue Fabrics during an expo.  I have no idea which expo and as I went to several last year.  The pieces were sold in 2 yard pieces and I'm glad that I bought 2 pieces...4 yards.




                                                Can you believe I didn't hack it!  Hahahaha!





Check out that godet!
It extends from the back/waist to the hemline. For some reason, I always worry that I won't get the godet right, but in most cases I do.  Then I'm always surprised.  I have no idea why I worry!  They are so much fun once finished.😄






And of course, there was some print matching to do.  Although I'm not 100% happy with it (thanks to distractions during the layout), I think it turned out well overall.




I will definitely be wearing this top a lot and am already planning to make another one...maybe stripes or a floral with some sort of hack. 

What do you think?
