If you arriving here from Britex, welcome to Nicole at Home!
I worked to match up the stripes on the sides, but didn't want them to be completely continuous across the arms, so the stripes there are positioned slightly lower. For the sleeve and hem cuffs, the pattern is also uninterrupted (you can't even tell there are cuffs there!)
This knit fabric from Britex is really lovely. It's light- to mid-weight (viscose/lycra) so it's slinky-drapey, but has enough body not be annoying while cutting or sewing. It truly works wonderfully for this pattern, especially for the cowl version. Check out the other colorway! And, for my practical side, it washes and dries perfectly!
Here's a view from the back. The placement of the stripes on the cowl create a large dark swath, but the look from the front makes up for it.
My little boy was working the remote shutter button.
I love this style because it can be dressed up or down, and is super comfy. I'll probably wear this to work with khakis or a skirt (maybe even this one!) Overall, another solid top that I'll be sure to wear like crazy. Thank you to Britex for providing the fabric and thread, and Sewaholic for the pattern!
love it...so cute.ReplyDelete
Absolutely love everything about this.ReplyDelete
very nice and the photographer did a great jobReplyDelete
It's a lovely top, and I particularly like the way you positioned the stripes on the arms - I don't think I would have thought to do that, but it worked out really nicely.ReplyDelete
This is such a pretty top! I would have never picked out that fabric (second guessing myself), but man does it ever look amazing all done up :)ReplyDelete
