My first project of the new year is…. done! I’m chalking this one up to being completed so fast due to the fact we were still on ‘vacation’ (tomorrow it’s back to school and I think we’ll all be dragging), but I will also admit that it’s a very easy pattern to sew. I’m fairly pleased with the outcome too, although there is a lot of print going on here, even for me (I’m thinking this is an ‘evening’going out look). I think with a future top I may try using a contrast for the shrug looking section, sleeves and back to tone down very bold designs. The thing I like most? The fit. It is perfect, right out of the package. I was so excited at how this top looks on I’m thinking I may have to do another right away!
In fact it made me go out and buy another Jalie design – 3132. When I was out shopping recently, I saw this style a lot in ready-to-wear casual so I’m excited to make a few of my own (I also think this is a pattern that Taylor wouldn’t mind wearing either).
