Description

I’m not sure what issue this top is out of as i cut of the date on my pattern by accident lol. It’s from a polish issue my friend loaned me last year so it’s probably from 2009/2010. The pattern is fabulous, it’s so easy . It takes a metre of fabric and about an hour to make. I made a couple last winter and three yesterday. Two are for my friend and one’s mine. They are so comfortable and nice on . My friends have slit sleeves send elastiated bottoms. X

    They are all great but the second is the best! I have traced this pattern but never used it, thanks for reminding to me. I hope i will find some gorgeous fabrics to use it like you did!

    Look simple but absolutely effective! I like the first one with those white pants the most: you look like from the page of a fashion review! They have to thank you for the promotion of the pattern: it’s good in all the variants:-)

    I really like it! What a fun top. Your friends are lucky to have you. I like your sewing assistant – the wonderful cat next to the sewing machine. :-)

      Thank you so much byva, i do sew really fast. I used to sew standing up and could sew so fast lol. We had to stand up and sew when i work for a stitching company. I work full time as well but i sew most evenings and week ends. I feel terrible if i don’t make st least one or two items a week lol x

      Thanks rita, this is my kind of top. They’re so easy to wear and you can layer them with a top under it. I was at the bingo last night with mum and quite a few woman asked me where i bought my top?? I ciuld’ve gone into business selling them lol x
