Being a long-time fan of Indygo Junction patters, I couldn’t resist this challenge!I began this project with the “Retro Raglan Jacket” IJ764, which I’ve made before. I cut it out of a vintage floral table cloth, and I cut the collar/flounce from another vintage embroidered linen tablecloth. This was a center decoration, cross-stitched in coordinating pinks and edged in grey stitching. For this top, I made a number of changes to the pattern. I used the shorter length (mid-hip) bodice and 3/4 length sleeves. I cut the neckline down in the front and edged it with a band of linen. I saw the folded/tucked technique on a top from Anthropology and thought it would be a fun, modern addition. The sleeves are gathered onto a simple cuff. The sides are trimmed down to hang straight and be a little closer to the body. I covered button for the front closure.
