Mimosa Basics

Sometimes you just need to sew up a good, “basic” top that goes with everything. That was my idea behind my latest make, the Mimosa. This time around (you can see my previous version here) I decided to go the short sleeved (non-rolled) version without a pocket in a basic black rayon blend…. and I love it so much!

Aside from the fact that this fabric easily wrinkles, it does have a great drape and this top is so easy to wear (and flattering too). I think I may make another in a solid white because I think it will look fabulous with jeans this fall. With that said, I don’t care for this shirt (as it is) with leggings – it just doesn’t cover enough of my rear end… so if I plan on using this for a tunic style design with leggings, I may just opt to increase the length by several inches and see how that turns out.

    I bought this pattern too with the same idea 🙂 Love yours! It’s just the sort of top you find yourself reaching for all the time. I always get such a great fit with Jalie it’s like magic.
