Description

I found this plaid knit in the bargain section at the fabric store and wanted something a little fancier than my usual Lydia top. It’s based on this pattern , but I changed the bodice to be more like the Lydia and added modified sleeves from Lydia as well. It’s a bit haphazard, but I like how it turned out. :)

Blogged here with more details about the construction and pattern-changes.

Material Notes

A plaid-printed knit from the bargain section, unknown fibres. The light-purple “cowl” part is the reverse of the same fabric.

    This looks so fantastic. The pattern you made of it and the fabric… great. I really love the looks of it. Doesn’t look haphazard, looks more like it was meant that way from the beginning.

    Just this morning I thought about sewing a shirt made out of this Burberry Vintage Wool using the Madison-Pattern, but I then dismissed the thought. And what do I say now, after seeing your awesonme plaid? I think again about doing the Madison top. ;-)
