Description

A goal of mine for 2012 is to use up as much of my fabric stash as possible, ideally finishing 1 project a week. This little number is week 1, project 1 – a red ponte top with a folded tie at the neck. I watched Mr & Mrs Smith last weekend, and loved the green top worn by Angelina Jolie. I drafted this pattern using the outline of the body of my best-fitting sweater, cut a wide `v` to the front and added a long wide tie at the neck. I love the way it looks on me, and will probably pair it with a black pencil skirt…

Material Notes

red ponte di roma, about 1.25m

    I really like your Mrs Smith sweater and how clever you are to copy the one from the movie. I am sure it will look great with whatever you pair it with.
