Description

This is the Banksia top pattern from Megan Nielsen. I started sewing a plain chambray version, but then I decided to add some piping while I was sewing to make it fun and to give it a bit more pop! It is a really nice pattern and the instructions are great. A sleeveless version is on my sewing list for warmer weather!

    This is a lovely top Julie. You have sewn it really well, especially all the piping detail. I love piping as it gives a lovely finish. Did you make your gorgeous skirt???

      Thank you so much Schnui! I didn’t make the skirt, unfortunately… I wish that I could say that I did! It was a lucky find on an Anthropologie store sale rack last spring (or maybe last fall?).
