I have to admit that I am in love with this top, really hard. It's perfect for the Brissy winter and also fills a wardrobe holes of a black top that was loose and flowy. I had muslined this back in Summer and knew that I wanted to change the neckline from a v-neck to a more rounder neck.
I also widened out the sides of the top, I think I cut a size 8 or 10 but I'm not that in hips so ended up drafting a new bottom hem to boot. I also left off the cuffs, who needs em. Check out all those intersecting seams!
Fabric is a cute viscose from the Fabric Store (a.k.a Fabric Heaven). Everything is french seamed so has a lovely finish on the inside.
Now i've got the pattern perfected, this may also be a good pattern to replicate for the warmer weather, in a light silk maybe.
I have so many more plans of sewing running through my mind as always, but so little time. I think I need to seriously start creating a more visual way of cataloguing the ideas that come into my little head, maybe a mood board or notebook or some sort?
In other news, I've discovered the joy that is Pinterest. I am here, come follow me.
Till next time!
