Description

For this particular project, I used Sarah Eagle’s popular Port Elizabeth Top pattern. Its loose, easy-going style makes it appropriate for hot summer weather, while its simplicity gives center stage to this absolutely glorious linen, cross woven with fuchsia and gold threads. The only changes I made to the pattern were to lengthen it a bit and to pinch in the sleeves with wooden buttons.

      Thank you! It was a simple detail to add—just an inverted pleat anchored with a button—but I like the shape it gives to the sleeves

    You look beautiful in your top! You are right about the pattern allowing the beauty of the fabric to be the focus of the garment. The sleeves are awesome too!

      thank you; the necklace is actually fairly new—I got it a couple of years ago from…Banana Republic (I think). It just seems to finish an outfit off well

      Thank you; the buttons were an afterthought, but I like the way they turned out
