Knotted Sleeves Top

Added Aug 4, 2018

Nedre Vats, Norway






When I saw Lisa’s top I knew I wanna make this! I got this lovely fabric from meg sewing-bee friend Monica and I know it would be perfect for this pattern. Since it was a little piece I had to combined it with the yellow jersey for the inner part of the ties of the sleeves. I adjusted the line for the back neck because I didn’t want to have it so deep, and I think it’s a nice summery top ;-)

    I hadn’t paid much attention to this top but it seems it’s a very popular one! Several nice versions already posted…I adore this cheerful yellow and the whole look is so relaxed :-)

    The tops lovely ellen and it looks so good on you. I’ve made 3 of these so far. I will post at some point but at the moment all my projects have vanished from my studio. Burda are looking into so fingers crossed they find them x

      Thanks ellen. So far I’ve still got no projects in my studio. I had over a hundred so it’s upsetting. X

    Så flott sommerlig uttrykk i fargevalg. Det var interessant å se en annen type halslinning på plagget enn det jeg brukte.

      Tusen takk Anne-Berit! Jeg ønket å ha den mindre utringet, så jeg brukte linjen på høyde med str. 44 :)
