Self drafted striped singlet top using “Candy’s Cane” jersey knit from Tessuti
I wanted a nice easy summery singlet to wear for those awful sticky days where it’s just too darn hot to even think about what you want to wear. I’m thinking this little self-drafted number fits the bill nicely!
I loosely based the shape on my pj top (shhh! don’t tell!) but added the ‘go faster’ stripes on the side to give the top a tad more niftyness. I think it works in rather well with the striped bias neck binding, and elevates it from ‘plain old singlet top’ to something a little more special.
The only thing I would change for next time is to make the armholes slightly lower. Just a cm or 2, but I think it will make it that little bit more comfortable. What do you guys think?
