And what you see paired with my favourite fancy pants (seen also here and here) is the world’s easiest top and the same bad hair as from here. The pattern I used was Vogue 8952. I made up a Medium in View C, but with a few changes:
- added a neckband
- shortened the sleeves by several inches
- widened the sleeves by a couple of inches. I did this by raising the shoulder seam until it was almost straight (instead of curving downwards)
- dropped the armscye by a few inches
- lengthened the hem and created a deep dip at the back
Pictures do not do this cotton jersey justice. It is the softest, most deliciously drapey jersey I have felt in the longest while. The print is a really unique pixelated design. I purchased it from Tessuti a few months ago. It was one of those fabrics I walked past and fell in love with instantly, but had no idea what I would do with it. They only had one roll of it so I’m not sure if it is still available. In any case, it’s about time I broke up some of that white in my wardrobe. Don’t you agree?
