While scrolling though Facebook the other day, I saw a woman who had sewn up the cutest, off-the-shoulder top and I found myself not being able to stop thinking about it. The pattern she used was Made for Mermaid’s Mama Stella Sweater Top and Tunic and I couldn’t resist buying it. It has a similar feel to The Hideaway that I had stitched up a few times last year, but with fitted arms and a slightly less off-the-shoulder fit (if you’re interested, you can read about my original Hideaway here and a less successful attempt in this post).
