Green swirly Ellinor

My attempt at the Ellinor top. I’m very happy with how it turned out. I didn’t use elastic at the waistline, opting for a casing and ribbon instead. I’ve never worn a top with sleeves like this before and I really like them. I might try them on another pattern if I can figure out how. If I make it again I will probably cut the front piece on the fold and not have a front seam or slit in the neckline.

Material Notes

Cotton, dollar store ribbon

    Oh, I’d forgotten about this pattern. It looks great! I like the print you chose with it, and personally I think the split in the neckline is great! But I’m into those these days :P. Good job, it’s gorgeous and very fashionable!

    Your fabric choice is great. The blouse is pretty. I would have to agree with you about trying the lay the pattern on the fold. I’ll have to try that, if I ever get around to making this top.
