Whelp, that’s it. The first project of 2018 is officially in the books and it is… Striped Swallow’s Hideaway!

For this version I used a striped sweater knit that I had gotten in a bundle package from Sincerely Rylee a few months ago. I know, off the shoulder top in a sweater? Sounds crazy, but it’s so very cute on. I wound up making the long sleeved version of View A (which has a more tapered waist) and I have to admit, I really like the fit. It has somewhat of a batwing arm, but there isn’t so much bulk around the chest that it bunches up oddly and the slimmer waist of this version helps to make it more flattering. Overall, this top is a winner – I can’t wait for it to warm up a smidge this weekend so I can wear it out with a cute pair of boots!
