V8952 in pixelated glory

 

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?
