You might recognise the pattern for this top! I made it a couple of years ago in burgundy silk dupion, and it has literally worn out. I missed it so much that I made another – this time in a gorgeous embroidered cotton silk.
Can you believe I don’t have any white tops in my wardrobe? I have forgotten how versatile white is as it goes with almost everything. I can see this version wearing out too!
There are back buttons (totally decorative and non-functional) and I had to rummage around in my button collection to find six white ones the same. I settled on these vintage pyjama buttons that are actually all slightly different shades of white, but we won’t mention that!
I love how the embroidery on this fabric resembles hand worked cross-stitch! The sleeve is lantern shaped with curved seams and a tuck to give extra volume.
So glad I made this versatile little top – I know it will get worn a lot this summer. Time for a new pattern though, I’ve made this one twice now. Do you ever make patterns more than once? I think making something twice is my limit – there are too many other options!
