I have to say, when Shop Onion opened up a while ago, I was intrigued. I had seen an occasional review of their patterns, but had shyed away from them since they weren’t in English. However, since Shop Onion not only offered the patterns themselves, but a translation of most designs, I decided I would at the very least sign up for their newsletter. Then last month, I could resist no longer – I placed my first order. So after getting them in the mail, the knit top went to the front of my ‘must sew’ list. I searched my stash and found a nice stripe cotton jersey that I had been storing for several months and a solid black interlock for a contrasting neckband – I was so excited to get started, I forgot to pre-wash….. I hope that doesn’t come back and haunt me after I launder this top for the first time.
So, now I present to you, my first Onion top:
I love it. If this was a top I found in a store, I would want one of every color! The directions were short, but wasn’t difficult to follow. I’m glad that they were translated, since there is only one illustration to look at and I’m not sure how language translation software does with Danish! If you’re interested in reading up more on this pattern – you can read my review here. This top makes my official review count at 100 on Pattern Review! Whew, that’s a lot of sewing.
