Top with gathering

I have used Diana pattern #24 02/2014 for this top. The top in the magazine was made of cotton fabric, but I decided to use jersey instead. The color is amazing and very refreshing! ;) The little details with the gathering at the neck and on the one side makes it a little special. For the back part I had to puzzle together in lack of fabric..

Material Notes

Viscose jersey




Spring, Summer

    Oh how lovely is this Ellen. I adore bright citrus colours and this green is fabulous on you. I’m hoping to pick up a couple of these magazines on holiday. With a bit of luck I should be able to buy September and October issues. The details on the top are lovely and make it special. Gorgeous x

    Hi Ellen, I really like your top! What a fun color. In the 80’s I had Body Glive shoes in this color! Neon is fun. You look so nice in this color. You have a sun tan. Happy summer time. :-)

    This top looks so lovely on you and the colour is as you wrote, refreshing. As always, beautifully sewn, even when you had to patchwork the back due to lack of fabric.

      Thanks a lot Schnui! Yeah, that’s the right word; patchwork.. Sometimes it happen when I decide what fabric to use ;-)

    That’s very pretty, I love the little detail on the neckline, what a gorgeous finish! And what a lovely colour, too, that looks perfect for those sunny days and perhaps a holiday away, wink, wink! I’m so happy I added you to my friends, you inspire me every day :) getting your new makes into my feed are one of those things that definitely make my day. So big thank you.
